Hello friends! Do you like free things? How about free things which are flammable?

Starting at 6am this morning, the Mobil station at 8489 Beverly Blvd will be giving away free gas to promote the video game Mercenaries 2: World in Flames.

1up.com explains:

Gas plays a key role in Mercenaries 2, which hits store shelves next week. The story centers around military struggle for control of the country and its valuable supplies of oil and gas. At a more practical level, players must collect fuel to be used to call in their weapon and supply drops. We’ve been playing it furiously over the past couple weeks to have our review ready for you when the game ships.

So go check out the madness that’s sure to ensue and pick up some sweet, free gasoline on EA Games dime!
