Check if and you will find about a quart of oi! apparently mining--they call this Ihe 'Hidden Quart,' for it stays up in your motor ond never drains away. The oil has penetrated the metal, producing a continuously oily surface." Ted: "Peggy, ihat accounts for our not havmo repair biffs! What gasoline do you buy?" Peggy: "I buy Conoco Bronze, for if also proved itself better than others. Has cold morning starling bothered our car? Haven't you said, 'The old bus runs like a charm 1 --haver.'* you bragged of its pep? Well, thank Conoco for that, as well at for more miles to the gallon, more power and anti-knock.
