"I had a strange dream last night," said the A-Card Driver. "Somehow I got a tankful of LOO-octane gasoline; and when I left the gas station, my 1939 puddle-jumper had such fantastic pep and power that it took-oft'and sailed right over the head of the traffic cop." Strange dream is right! Because strange as it seems, today's 100-octane aviation gasoline will not greatly improve the performance of today's cars. Your present engine was designed for the gasoline which was available at the time you bought your car, and 100-octane would add little or nothing to its satisfactory operation. . When victory comes, however, automotive designers will undoubtedly develop smaller, much higher compression engines which will deliver remarkable mileage and power with post-war super fuels. When that day arrives, Phillips will be ready . . . because Phillips was one of the first, and remains one of the largest makers of high octane aviation fuels. Phillips present production of 100-octane gasoline could fuel enougli Flying Fortresses to drop 600 tons of bombs on Berlin daily. And soon the figure will be stepped up to an equivalent of gasoline sufficient to drop 800 tons of bombs per day on the German capital. Actually, this American super fuel is not gasoline made by ordinary refinery processes. It is a true synthetic chemical, made by chemical processes which rearrange the petroleum hydrocarbon molecules. That is wliy we say: Every time you sec the Phillips 66 Shield, let it remind you that Phillips refineries, in addition to producing gasolines, lubricants, and fuel oils ... are also gigantic chemical plants pouring out weapons for victory.
