Free Gas at One L.A. Area Station Tomorrow

What if we told you that you could grab some free gas in the L.A. area tomorrow?

What's the catch? would probably be your response. And there is a catch: The free gas is diesel. For the most part. Actually there is a way you can fill-up on some non-diesel:

If you drive an Audi.

That's because the folks behind the fine German brand are coming to a 76 gas station in Santa Monica tomorrow to celebrate the "clean diesel movement."

Not only can Audi owners get free gas -- whether or not they drive a diesel model -- but owners of contemporary "clean diesel" cars by other makers can also vie for a free fill-up, Audi says.

A spokeswoman for the event tells us:

All Audi drivers (both TDI and gasoline) will receive a complimentary tank of fuel and be escorted through an "express lane" where their vehicle will be hand detailed by an Audi pit crew.

Additionally, folks with "non-Audi diesel vehicles" can get their gas while supplies last, according to the publicist.

Audi is promoting its TDI-line of diesel vehicles as an "environmentally-friendly alternative fuel option."

It happens 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow at the 76 station at 1776 Cloverfield Blvd. in Santa Moncia.
