The Quality of Motor Oil Depends I ; •'- - . ..'.-. ! - :. i^vv; ••• on the way Imade : : x : -: : ll; Repeated tests have shown that motor oil manufactured from cnillei produced in a given territory may differ widely in lubricating yaW. The fact that certain oils are made from certain crudes*-by different manufacturers-does not mean that the oils are equally efficient. Because the secret of quality in motor oil is largely in the making— not in the crude alone. Nothing is too good for a product which bears the "Standard" Name. A skilled technical organization selects-for the.making .of "Standard" Motor .Oil—those crudes which test* show have certain definite prof-' erties. And, through scientific manufacture, in one of the. world'i greatest refineries, the wax, excess carbon and other impurities of th« crude are removed, and the lubricating and heat-resisting qualiti* are combined and refined into a motor oil that meets every test. "Standard" Motor Oil makes motors—new or old—run srnootrwr . and better, and costs run lower. Sells for o§ly 25c a quart, every- where. Better stick to "Standard."
