To kick off the busy summer travel season, we rolled out two blue tanker trucks and surprised Honda drivers across the Southland with complimentary gas. We popped up at the pumps every #TankerTuesday and #TankerThursday through 4th of July to help loyal Honda drivers with a free fill-up. We even pumped free gas for veterans and members of the armed forces on Memorial Day and Independence Day, to thank them for their service, no matter what type of car they drove.

At a station in Marina Del Rey, one Honda driver was extremely grateful for our Random Act of Helpfulness; “Thanks so much, we really needed this. Can I give you a hug?”  After helping a driver with a long commute in San Bernardino, he explained; “I commute every day from East LA to Loma Linda. That’s why I bought a Honda. Thank you so much”. Another driver was blown away by our help; “This is the best surprise I have gotten all year”.

So what’s next? We’ll be visiting schools across Southern California and popping up with back to school fairs. We’ll be surprising every single student with a book of their own to take home.
