Forsberg's j J BOOT SHOP ; I 413 Fifteenth Street, Moline CH A.L M E.R'S Gets Maximum Power from Present Day Gas OBVIOUSLY, the proty lem of gasoline is get' ting more and more serious, and obviously, too, gasoline is going down and down in grade. Cars are not performing the way they once did. Fuel experts say there is just as much power in a low grade "gas" as in a high grade "gas." But the problem is to get out this power. Hot Spot and RamVhorn in a Chalmers perform this task. Hot Spot heats and "breaks up" the heavy, raw particles of gas like water striking a hot stove. - A fine vapor "cloud" is formed,' which is the very "food" the cylinders need, and "gas" is in that fine RamVhorn rushes while the condition it to the cylinders. The results are well known to those who drive a Chalmers. This action,"snap," absence of vibration. are common to a Chalmers, but it has none of those troubles common to cars whose engines are not design' ed to accept and "digest" the low grade "gas" of the day. Those troubles are hard starting, freouenc fouling of spark plugs, burned bearings, scored cylinders, abbreviated mileage from "gas."
