TisingAssociated Ethyl and let the carbon in your car alone. Don't burn it out. Don'tscrape
it out. Keep it there and let moreof itform! . . ii Associated Ethyl neutralizes the ill effects
of carbon. It prevents the heat from carbon from acting, and utilizes the increased compres-1
sion. It speeds up the revolutions-per-minute of your motor, thus producing more power, j
more speed, greater Ability. And it silences those troublesome "knocks?'. . . . Other things

Associated Ethyl Gasoline gives you these remarkable re
sults because Associated Gasoline is a superfine gasoline to
tart with. The addition of Ethyl compound will not make a
high-grade gasoline out of a mediocre or poor motor fuel. It
does develop the inherent power-qualities of good gasoline. It
creates, within the motor, improved conditions of combus
tion, so that the gasoline is able to function to its full cap
abilities. The higher quality of the gasoline to which Ethyl is
added, the higher the quality of the resulting combination.
The color of Associated Ethyl Gasoline is red. But it does
not follow that all "red" gasolines are Ethyl gasolines. For
your protection, fill from Associated Ethyl Gasoline pumps
at Associated service stations or the best independent
dealers. Try a tankfull of this super-fueL
