Dads do quite a bit for us, don’t they? So when Father’s Day came around, we wanted to help bring Dads a little extra pump of helpfulness.

We showed up at a local gas station in San Diego to surprise Dads with free gas. And let’s just say, it was a nice addition to the cool socks or ties you might have given your Dad as a gift! Dads reacted with, “I can’t believe this is real! This gas will get me through the week!” And also shared, “Thank you, Honda, for recognizing all the hard work father’s do.” Thank you, Dad, for being so helpful in our lives. We appreciate you!

The 4th of July holiday is all about the red, white, and Helpful Honda Guys in Blue.

The price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County set an Independence Day record, averaging about $6.21 per gallon. So, we wanted to help. We sent our Helpful Honda Guys to local gas stations in Vista, Oceanside, and Poway to give away FREE GAS!

We love our loyal Honda drivers, and hundreds of you showed up to support us! Some of our Honda-driving pals shared sentiments like, “We are people that love our Hondas, now more than ever! Thank you for the free gas!” And some were just happy to know that we actually exist, saying, “I had only heard your commercials, but now I see you’re real. Thanks for this gas!”

We also recognized members of our Active Military and Veterans by helping them with free gas, too. We were happy to meet, and personally thank many of those who serve (or have served), and they shared their gratitude, too. One military member shared, “During these times, I’m so glad that a company like Honda would give us military a little gas to help us out.” You’re welcome. It’s just one way we’re saying, “’Tanks’ for your service.”

So what’s next for us? Well, it’s summertime and you know what’s cooler than being cool? Free ice cream, of course! We’ve asked you to tell us where to go, and who you’d like to help with a free frozen treat, so we’ll be heading your way, soon! Make sure you’re following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to find out where we’ll be and we could give you a sweet treat to help you beat the heat.
