Economy runs, once so popular among automobile manufacturers, have almost passed out of existence due to the foregone conclusion that the Franklin would win. Here is the result of the one remaining event of importance. FOIH'ER CURRV. Donatorof Ule Camp dnyTrophF STAND1SH MIICIIELl, Stc. A B. F. STF.rilESSOK. A. A. A.TccbnlUl Keprrrenlilire New Record For Fuel Economy In Annual Yosemite Run 49.9 Ton Miles to the Gallon of Gnsoline Scored by ihe Franklin Car FRANKLIN WON Wins Three First Prizes in EvcEt Testing liconomy Irom Even' Angle The last remaining automobile economy run of national importance has beenthe "Yosemite Run" from Los Angeles to Camp Curry, Yosem- ite, conducted by the Automobile Club of Southern California under official A. A. A. supervision. Cars of many different types, makes, weights and prices were entered. The distance is 374.5 miles over the steep slopes of the Sierra Moun- tains. A profile of the route pre- sents a saw-tooth ranging up to 6800 ing long, tiring grades as well as sharp rises. No better route could be selected to test car efficiency and reliability from every omy, power, cooling and comfort. And no better demonstration of the correctness of the Franklin principles ofair weight and flexibility could be desired (ban the results recorded. Even though a rating of "ton-miles" was devised to remove all handicaps of weight, the Franklin took both prizes' for which all cars were eligible, in addition to the prize in its own class. FIRST PRIZE Sweepstakes best all- round showing of any carat any gasoline and oil consumption and cooling efficiency. It covered the 374.5 miles on 13 gallons of gasoline, an average of 28.8 miles to the gallon. FIRST PRIZE All classes, most ton-miles per gallon of gasoline. This rating was devised to remove all handicaps of weight. It put all scores on an equal basis of comparison. The Franklin, with 49.9 ton-miles, beat lighter and heavier cars. FIRST PRIZE Own price class, for most ton- miles per gallon. The Franklin established a new record, being the frsl car of any make lo win three prizes in the history of Ihe event. This triple victory for the principles of light weight and flexible construction and direct air cooling (no wste.r to boil or freeze) is important. It indicates to motorists the freedom from trouble, the fuel economy, and the assurance of motoring satisfaction open to them with the Franklin Car. These advantages have long been summed up in the conservative statement of Kranklfn performance 20 flie gallon of miles to. of tires 50% slower ywrly''depreciation- Practically without exception, the Franklin Car has established the econ- omy records of all the official events held in seventeen years.
