Chevrolet Impala Cadillac DeVille Pontiac Catahna Buick LeSabre Good news for you about savings in overall operating costs ranging from to S1.000 on Chevrolet Impala. Pontiac Catalina. Oldsmobile Delta 88. Buick LeSabre and Cadillac DeVille for 75. Canada Once again, the new GM Maximum Mileage System has lived up to our expectations. And as a result, you can realize substantial savings in overall operating costs on each of these cars as compared to last year's models.These impressive savings range from over on the 75 Impala to more than on the Delta 88 over miles of driving...say about 4 year's worth. How? Through the money you would save on gas and scheduled maintenance costs. For example, let's compare the 1975 Chevrolet impala with its 1974 counter- part. Based on Urban Driving Tests conducted by the U.S. Government's Environmental Protection Agency, which emphasize stop-and-gocity driving, the 75 Impala, using unleaded gasoline shows about a 10% mileage improvement over the 74 model using leaded fuel. Our own proving ground tests, which include suburban-type driving conditions, confirm this 10% improvement. Over miles, that amounts to 315 fewer gallons of gas. If you paid 67.90 per gallon, which allows a per gallon increase for unleaded fuel over regular fuel, this represents a net savings of (these calculations could vary depending on the prices of leaded and unleaded fuel in your Now let's compare scheduled maintenance costs. If you followed the owner's manual for recommended service, the 75 Impala with the Maxi- mum Mileage System could save you nearly on parts, lubricants and labor over the 74 model using leaded fuel. Since the System features GM's Catalytic Converter, High Energy Ignition, Fast Warm-up Carburetion and Steel-belted Radial Tires, the predominant savings occur in fewer scheduled changes for spark plugs, oil, oil filters and lubrications. And with our Maximum Mileage System, there are no points or ignition condenser to replace. Of course, parts and labor costs will vary throughout the country, but we've used current list prices and figured labor at per hour. All together, then, when you add it all up, it amounts to an impressive savings of over on the Impala and even more on these other cars. Which is another reason why we say that The System is the most advanced engineering and technology we can offer on 1975 General Motors cars. We want you to drive what you like and like what you drive.
