[Tankerkoenig] Use of the mode "OpeningTimes"

The mode “Opening Times” was created in order to reduce the amount price requests by omitting request to stations that are currently closed. The opening times are taken from a detailed report which is requested daily.
That works!

Starting two days ago at least one the stations I am monitoring, which has limited SHOP opening times but offers self service terminal 24/7, started to report its opening times based on the SHOP times. Using the mode “Opening Times” no price updates would be requested when “closed”.
Since the self service terminal is open and also since the prices are changing during those times, the binding would have false information.
I switched the mode “Opening Times” off. If you are monitoring stations with such terminals, watch out for such a change in reporting behaviour.
