The Fallacy of Paraffine
Base:&Eastern oil manufac
turers have long extolled
the superior virtues of paraf fine
base motor oils. But Pacific Coast
motorists have proved that Zero
lene, made from selected Califor
nia crude, asphalt-base, gave best
results. Their experience is now
supported by the testimony of in
ternational experts. Lieut. Bryan
stated before the Am. Soc. of Naval
Engineers: "Oils made from the
asphalt-base crudes have shown themselves better
adapted to motor cylinders, as far as their carbon
forming proclivities are concerned, than are paraf
fine -base Pennsylvania oils." Zerolene received
