Don't Blame Your Carburetor for
the Fault of Your Gasoline
MANY motorists think "gas" is just "gas," and that's all
there is to it.
So, when they need their tank filled, they simply ask
for gasoline.
What the dealer puts into that tank, only he knows. i am
It's "gasoline" all right, but what kind of "gasoline?"
If the dealer is conscientious, he sells you a straight-distilled,
homogeneous gasoline.

If you want more miles to the ?fall?n?and more smiles to the
mile?don't merely order "gas." SPECIFY
