Free petrol sparks frenzy

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of ve­hi­cles stretched along Syd­ney’s Great Western Hwy as driv­ers queued for Metro Pe­tro­leum’s free fuel of­fer in St Marys last Wed­nes­day.

Cars had be­gun queu­ing at the petrol sta­tion well be­fore noon when the price of petrol was heav­ily dis­counted by $1/litre in the launch of a new re­ward points phone app.

The petrol sta­tion teamed up with Go2 Re­wards to give the dis­counted fuel to driv­ers who’d down­loaded their app. Be­cause petrol prices re­mained un­der $1, driv­ers could fill their tanks, free, up to $50.

De­spite the long wait, the of­fer went smoothly, with Go2 staff walk­ing up and down the lines of cars keep­ing driv­ers up­dated.
