They'll tell you why it's time now to drain out winter-worn oil and change to heavier grades. When you change, decide that this gammer you'll keep sludge out of your engine. For sludge clogs your oil lines, hinders lubrication, fouls your filter. It makes valves sluggish so you lose gasoline power. Finally, it causes rings to stick and pump oil. It is the greatest cause of high motor-oil consumption. t Keep sludge out by using Iso=Vis "D", the Anti-Sludge Motor Oil. It does not sludge under the hardest kind of driving. It keeps rings lively and free, reducing oil consumption to the minimum. That's why you have to add to it less frequently between drains. iso=vis "D". PLUS FEDERAL TAX TOTAL . . i .T. :«7-T-T~ 26C a qf. itf Spring Weather Calls for Heavier-Grade Motor Oil MARCH IB-APRIL 15 APRIL 1S-MAY IS vf TEMPERATURE DUE TO RISE The maps above arc based on U. S. Weather Bureau records, in many cases extending back 50 years. Study them. They show why you should change to a heavier grade of motor oil at this season of the year, in order to secure the most economical lubrication. In the light-shaded areas, temperatures are such that cool-weather grades of oil are recommended. In the dark-shaded areas, temperatures have advanced to a'point where the next heavier grade of oil has the advantage of less oil consumption. Every Standard Servisman uses such information as this in determining the exact grade of oil you should use in your motrr. He doesn't guess. He bases his recommendation onthrec factors--theweather,thekindof car you own, and the kind of driving you do. 8 SHORT MINUTES TO DRAIN AND CHANGE It takes no more than 8 minutes to drain off your worn-out winter oil and refill with the proper grade of Iso=Vis "D" at Standard Oil Stations. Then you will Le rid of sludge and you'll keep your oil cost to the minimum. It's Change Time, Too, For Differential and Transmission Lubricants Spring-time is the time to heavy-up on lubricants that protect your differential and transmission gears. Standard Stations have correct luhri- cants for this very purpose. And Standard Scrvismen are expert in the complete lubrication of any make of car--old or new. A Standard Specified Lubrication job means correct lubrication at every point. STANDA ERV A L S O D I S T R I B U T O R S O F A T L A S T I R E S A N D B A T T E R I E S
