You have resolved to keep it looking like now resolve to keep it running like new! . Mg new ; -M si •» ' [•Tsje] !• '■*'! ^LT'OUR new car has bearing pressures and crank X case temperatures undreamed of ten years ago! To protect it, you need oil with enough oiliness and film strength to withstand these new conditions. Straight mineral oils have no more oiliness and film strength today than they had ten years ago. Some are so over-refined by new processes to elim inate carbon and sludge that they have been robbed of the oiliness and film strength they must have to give safe lubrication. Conoco Germ Processed Motor Oil will help you keep your new car new because it is custom-made for it! It offers you these advantages, so vital for full protection of today's high-powered motors— 1« Better protection of closely fitted parts under extreme pressure. Reason: The Germ Process (add ing concentrated oily essence to highly refined oil) gives this oil 2 to 4 times greater film strength than oils not Germ Processed. Proof: Tests on Timken, Al men and other machines that measure film strength. 2. Cuts down starting-period wear that other oils cannot prevent. Reason: Germ Processed Oil pene trates and combines with metal surfaces, forming a "Hidden Quart" that never drains away. Proof: Hundreds of "dry-crankcase runs," in which cars using Germ Processed Oil were driven 15 to 75 miles with the crankcase empty but without damage. 3* Extra long mileage. Reason: Greater oiliness and stability under all conditions. Proof: The In j m * / dianapolis Destruction Test, in which a stock car ran 4,729 miles at 50 miles an hour on exactly 5 quarts, none added—1,410 miles farther than the best of five competitors. 4. No carbon or sludge troubles. Reason: New refining processes assure a clean, pure oil. Proof: 963,000 miles of official road tests, followed by millions of trouble-free miles driven by users of Germ Processed Oil. We believe Conoco Germ Processed Oil is the best lubricant you can put in your new car. We hope you, too, will say, "O.K.—Drain!
