This difference of.10 octane numbers is definitely definitely contributing toward hastening the day of victory, because these extra octane-numbers represent extra fighting power . ; . extra range and carrying capacity for our big bombers-;;: extra speed for our fighter planes! In thirty months, U. S. production of 100- Octane Aviation Gasoline has been multiplied ten times. Our facilities for producing this pre-- cious, fighting, super-fuel can now deliver 21,000,000 gallons daily. Think of it! This is a greater quantity of aviation gasoline alone than the combined total of all petroleum products available to Axis Europe, Phillips Petroleum Company, among the first to take 100-Octane gasoline out of the labora^ tory and into mass production, is now one of the nation's foe largest proJriceri of 100-Octane, despite the face that Phillips operates only in the Middle West. This production achievement suggests how competently and completely Phillips is devoting itself to the war effort, with similar special emphasis on butadiene for synthetic rubber. Until that great day comes, when you can' say "Fill 'er up with Phillips"... and the service man cranks into your tank a new and improved Phillips gasoline . , . remember that Phillips refineries, in addition to producing gasoline, lubricants, and fiel oils, are also gigantic chemical chemical plants pouring out weapons for victory.
