Not enough can vaporize to catch from
the spark in a cold motor 1
Some refiners add "wild" light frac
tions to make "winter gasoline." That
doesn't correct the trouble. Your motor
will sputter and miss for blocks after it
etarts. Such gasoline is still "wet"
Worst of all is the oil dilution which
"wet" gasolines cause. The gasoline that
can't burn pours down cylinder walls,
washing away the oil film, ruining the
crank case oil
Shell 400, the "dry" gas, has the heavy

choice almost as soon as the motor starts.
And because it burns cleanly, you avoid -oil
