Motor oil made from asphalt-base
crude gives best
lubrication with least car
bon. Such is the testimony oi
motorists and experts alike. As
Lieut. Bryan, U.S.N., puts it: "Oils
made from the asphalt-base crudes
better adapted to motor cylinders,
as far as their carbon-forming pro
clivities are concerned, than are
paraff ine-base Pennsylvania oils."
Zerolene is scientifically refined
from selected California crude
asphalt-base not only made from
the right crude but made right. Dealers

agencies of the Standard Oil Company.
