Skelly's new principle of tailor-making gives your motor the correct 7600-to-l AIR MIX -7600 gallons of air to 1 gallon of Tailor-Made Aromax. This means more mileage--matt- mum mileage, the year around. So efficient is this new tailor-making principle that Skelly dares make this money-back guarantee: Four Money Back "Buy 8 to 12 gallons of Skelly Aromax. Compare the mileage under fair conditions and good carburetor adjustment, with any other gasoline you have used. Then, if any other gasoline at any price gives yoii greater mileage, Skelly will give you your money back." That is the fair, square guarantee Skelly makes, so that without losing, you can find out which gasoline is the most economical. Test' Can Prove Economy In hundreds of thousands of miles of testing, Skelly test cars, prove that a gasoline gives economy only when the AIR-MIX is correct. These results agree with the findings of nationally known engineers that your car works most efficiently when the carburetor is mixing about 7600 gallons of air to 1 gallon of gasoline. The gasoline must be changed, with variations of temperature and altitude, to maintain this correct 7600-to-l AIR-MIX. Gasoline Changes in Weight Gasoline condenses in cold weather, expands in .warm. For that reason, it is heavier in winter, lighter in summer. This forces carburetor adjustments. Correct tailor-making overcomes this change in weight, gives correct . AIR-MIX the year around, makes f carburetor adjustments unnecessary, gives maximum economy. Without correcl AIR-MIX tailor- making, gasoline will not give economy unless seasonal carburetor adjustments are made. These findings confirm the results proved by oil technologists in some of the nation's leading laboratories. Prove AIR-MIX Retults Back of this guarantee is Skelly Oil Company's record of dependability and research. Skelly first gave both high test and high anti-knock in one gasoline.
