Electronic Arts is giving away £20,000 of FREE petrol to customers at a London petrol station

Mercenaries from Electronic Arts are hijacking a London petrol station this morning and giving away £20,000 of FREE petrol to customers.

The entire forecourt of Last Stop Ltd near Finsbury Park, North London will be completely transformed into that of a military style bunker, with jeeps, oil barrels, sandbag walls, and fully costumed actors on hand to pump the petrol for the customers.

The stunt is taking place to celebrate the launch of new videogame Mercenaries 2: World in Flames out today on Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 and PC:DVD. The activity mirrors that of the game, which features a mercenary soldier taking possession of the local oil supply.

The full address of petrol station is - Last Stop Ltd, 73, Stapleton Hall Rd, London, N4 3QF

Yes. Walk to the forecourt and see if they are still doing it.
Do not forget to try and take a small petrol bottle to fill up. Beat the queue

double post please read entirety of thread before posting :geek:

I don't see why people are complaining, probably the ones who were too late to get any petrol :whistling:

If a company wants to give away free petrol, they can do, there are no rules stopping them :thumbsup:

inciting public disorder is a crime a believe :whistling:

Great Deal, wish it'd been posted yesterday - I would have got there for 6am and attempted a double run (for the missus's car too!) if I had known about it. Oh well - hope it comes round again. Free - is Free
