If AGE EIGHT New Product Is Being Made fu California In Commercial Quantities RAN FRANCISCO, Mar. 9 (UP) —Synthetic gasoline, the drram of scientists for tnc past 18 years, Is Mug produced In California In large, commercial quantities. The nrocHiL't is a little more costly than Uic ordinary gasoline, Inil is being fashioned especially to meet [he mast exacting requirements of the )>igh-po'.«>r- conipresslon motor, such as Is used in aviation. 'Hie search for synthetic yaso- line began in 1920 when the country first, began to realize that with the yreat development which Hie automobile was inking then? lio either a close conservulloii of (lie world's supply of petroleum or eke the development, of some svn- thritc .substitute. rclrolrinn l/'se<l .n s Base The synthetic gasoline now he- iiiff manufactured still depends upon the existence of petroleum, but it servos the double purpose of conserving the world's supply of the latter while at the same time producing a gasoline of superior quality. Originn! experiments (hat wern begun back in the '20s for the manufacture of synthetic gasoline were iiased upon Ihn possibility of utilizing the gaseous hydrocarbons nliicJi occur naliirnlh- in crude petroleum. The process as perfected is based upon llic same idea. The raw material used in manufacturing the new gasoline is the olefin gas formed as a by-product In the handling of crude pelroleum. There nro (hrce different kinds of olefin gns that are given, off. but the one known as butenc is (he one Iliat is ueln" utilized now. Cracking- Process Necessary To obtain (Ills gns, heavy fuel oil is run under hitrh temperature and pressure through huge cracking furnaces witli the primary objective of conversion to cracked gasoline.
