Calling all Phillips, Phyllises, Felipes, Phillipas, or some other form of Phil...get your gas tanks ready; Secret gas station in Los Angeles to be the site of the largest gathering of people named Phillip, getting fill-ups ever recorded in history

GasBuddy's Perfect Phillip Campaign
“It’s about time the name Phillip gets the recognition it deserves,” said Philip Corson, a real GasBuddy employee who is very proud of his name, and prefers it to be spelled with one L.

For years GasBuddy has been dedicated to perfecting the fill-up. The popular app, with more than 75 million downloads, helps drivers find gas stations based on price, location and whether or not the restrooms will make you gag. Today GasBuddy wants to honor those who live, breathe and embody the fill-up in the most literal way: People named Phillip*.

“It’s about time the name Phillip gets the recognition it deserves,” said Philip Corson, a real GasBuddy employee who is very proud of his name, and prefers it to be spelled with one L. “Every day in the office I hear ‘fill-up this’ and ‘fill-up that’. It’s distracting, confusing and leaves me feeling...empty.”

GasBuddy will be celebrating folks named Phillip until the end of the year. To kick off the celebration, GasBuddy will attempt to break the record for the largest gathering of Phillips getting fill-ups. What was the previous record? No one really knows.

On Sept 20 at a secret gas station in Los Angeles, people who show up with the first or last name Phillip will get up to $25 of free gas. Yes, proof of identification will certainly be checked because GasBuddy frowns upon fake Phillips. The location will be revealed on GasBuddy’s social media channels on the morning of the event.

Other Phillip celebrations include:
