When the cold snap comes it is important that you use
lubricating oil having a low cold test. Zerolene No. 1, No.
3 and No. 5 are low cold test oils. They remain fluid and
feed properly even when the temperature is below freezing.
Poor cold test oils congeal at freezing temperatures.
This causes hard starting with excessive drain on your
storage battery. When congealed, the oil cannot be splashed
or pumped to the bearing surfaces in sufficient quantities,
and there will be lack of lubrication until the oil has been
wanned by the heat of the engine. During this time there
will be loss of power and poor acceleration. Excessive wear
or even burned bearings and scored cylinders may result.
Drain your crankcase and fill with Zerolene as recom
mended for winter use in the Zerolene Correct Lubrication
Chart and solve your cold weather lubrication problems.
For sale by dealers everywhere and at our stations.
