OCTANE Efficiency Means
Vital to Fast Motors.
Octane Efficiency is meeting the demand
for faster speeds by converting more gasoline
power into utngin ftwar". It means c
trtllea even combustion delivering a con
tinuous, stronger thrust of power from the
top to the bottara of every piston stroke. Be
auts some gasolines waste power in pre
mature, blocking explosions the automo
tive world now looks for motor fuels of high
Octane Efficiency that work vrith your en
gine instead of against it.
Wake Up Motors!

motor performance particularly gratifying
