"" "HIGHEST TEST at the price of ordinary gasoline Phillips 66 volalifity is 69.6 per cent higher than the average of 28'competttivc yasolines. Proved by unbiased laboratory tests based on distillation at 212 degrees. Perhaps you think that this is a fairly attractive advertisement, but the best advertising we do for Phillips 66 ... the greater gasoline -is not advertising at all, in the usual sense. It'is the fact that we make Phillips 66 gasoline higher test than other motor fuels. The natural result is that those who try it give it priceless word of mouth advertising. They tell their friends. The frierjds tell others. Already, nearly seven million motorists are genuinely enthusiastic about the added power, faster get-away, longer mileage, and sensationally fast cold-weather starting, given by this amazingly better gasoline. Why not see for yourself the difference which high test makes in your motor? Especially when Phillips, world's largest producer of natural high gravity gasoline, offers this higher test gas without a penny of higher price. At every Orange and Black 66 shield.
