HOUSTON, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Phillips 66, 76, and Conoco gas station chains announced today that Maria Brown from Glendale, Calif. won gas for life by filling up with TOP TIER™ Detergent Gasoline at a 76 gas station this summer. Brown participated, along with 240,000 other people, in the Gas for Life promotion from the Phillips 66 Company—which ran in more than 50 markets during June and July.
"With gas prices on the rise, I'm grateful to 76 for this gift that will help me and my family for many years to come," said Brown. "Every time I fill up at a 76 station, I know I'm getting the highest quality gas for my car as well as a great customer experience."
For the sixth year in a row, the Phillips 66 Company held an annual sweepstakes at more than 3,500 participating Phillips 66, 76, and Conoco gas stations. Drivers who filled up with 10 gallons or more of high performance gasoline at participating stations received a game card* with a promotional code. By entering the code online, drivers had a chance to win prizes including 6,000 $20 gas cards, 24 chances for free gas for one year, and the grand prize of free gas for life.
"While we take pride in providing our patrons TOP TIER™ Detergent Gasoline, the most important thing in the car is the person behind the wheel," said Tami Walker, Manager, U.S. Fuels Brand Management for Phillips 66, 76, and Conoco. "We're committed to always being on the driver's side, so it gives us great pleasure to give our loyal customers, like Maria, several great prizes to make their lives a little easier."
The Phillips 66 Company will host a celebration in Brown's honor on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 10-11:30 a.m. at the 76 Express Service Center Pacific in Glendale (1000 N. Pacific Avenue), where she received the winning game card. Attendees will have the opportunity to receive $100 gas cards and family four-packs of local theme park tickets.
