Its motor was engineered specifically for the gasolines which were available at tlic time you bought'your car. To secure the benefits of very.high octane fuels, post-war motors will have much higher compression ratios, will be smaller and lighter, and will deliver greatly increased power and extraordinary mileage. i , All this will be possible because of the super gasolines to be made ., available for motorists in the posr- P> war pcrjpcL And you have every tcason ;to 'expect that Phillips will be; among\rfie ficsc to offer these ^asfly imptove'd motor .fuels soon after victory. Why? Because Phillips is today one of the nation's uve largest producers of 100-ou;me aviation gasoline. Phillips is also one of the Jc.iders in the war production of butadiene for synthetic rubber. These achievements are a direct ' result of Phillips long years of peacetime research to extend the frontiers of knowledge concerning hydrocarbon chemistry. Oilier accomplishments, which cannot now be toU for security reasons, flow from Phillips wartime exploration of tlic limitless possibilities of chemical production of new and better tilings from petroleum gases as well as from petroleum.
