And What Do They Cost?
The answer Is not in the
pribe per 'quart of oil, but
how'much per 'mile. Nor
are: the higher priced oils
necessarily the best
For example: There isn't
a better motor oil in the
world than Aristo Motor
OiL It i refined in Cali
fornia, from selected west
Because of volume pro
duction, and low freight
rates, it easily under-scllj
the eastern oils. -
Some people think that
the higher price means a
better, eiL Nothing could
be farther from the truth.
Aristo, as an instance, is
made ! without rczard tor
costwith concern only
for quality. And it couldn't
be a better lubricant if
.you paid twice as much
Aristo combats' the for
mation of carbon. It is an
unexcelled lubricant. Its
saving is thus in service as
well as price.
