With this statement.

In addition to %Jie savings in gasoline, the battery of the automobile is saved a great deal of wear and tear from trying to start the motor on cold mornings.

The diagnosis (includes the tune- up work every car needs, plus an exhaust gas analvsis to make sure the carburetor is deliverinc: Just the right mixture to give the owner top performance and gasoline mileage. In describing this exhaust analysis and the benefits to be derived by the owner, Massey quoted a number of statistics that have been compiled by the Pontiac Motor Division. These figures revealed the remarkable savings in gasoline expense that can be earned by a well - tuned motor. For example: An automobile that gets only 12 miles to the gallon of gasoline will use 833 gallons in 10,000 miles. At a cos*, of 25 cents per gallon, the fuel cost for the 10.000 miles would be $208.26. If the miles per gallon of this same automobile, through motor tune-up, can be increased to 18 miles of travel -of $69.50.
