EVERYWHERE YOU GO IOT MUCH CHANCE for you to go clocking different brands of motor oil to prove which one flows fastest in Eskimo season. Yet the quicker the lubrication at every cold start, the leas ''dry rub” on delicate surfaces in your engine. Then why not change now to Conoco oil for Winter and get an OIL-rlated engine? Oil-plating is high up in the cylinders to fight fierce grind, much sooner than any plain oil-flow alone could even start wiggling. Conoco NM* oil, you see—all in addition to speedy flow—fastens OIL-PLATING to inner engine; surfaces, as if by ’’magnetic attraction!* This close-bonded oil-plating is up to its topmost point before you even touch the starter — and that’s ''faster than last,” to aid you toward anti-friction starting. Even up in Iceland, of course, any engine’s normal firing is hotter than the Land of the Hottentots. Yet you don’t want to ‘‘burn up the oil.” And Conoco NM proved it could last for more than twice the mileage averaged by the five other big-name oils in the impartial Death Valley Death-Test. When all five others were used up—engines ruined as each strict 5-quart fill gave out—the Conoco Nfh oil that competed under identical conditions was still up at 2.7 quarts! Certified! A known economy record... plus a known aid to sale prompt starting . . . when you change to Conoco Nth for Winter oil-plating, at Your Mileage Merchant’s Conoco station. Today. Continental Oil Company «4WI Copyright 1911. Liccett & Myers Toluca* Co.. GAVE TWICE THE ENGINE LIFE! This oil that OIL-PLATES gave its engine more than twice the life averaged by the engines using the other oils in the Death-Test. In these times use your car prudently. And use oil that’s great (or engine life—changing regularly as recommended. Good starting—good lubrication against all needless wear—helps conserve gasoline, too.
