S EE how refreshing it is, the way Your Mileage Merchant—-here in the paper and at his Conoco station—backs up his statements about Germ Processed oil. It brings you more than an oil-change, be- caus% right after it is pumped up from the crankcase like any oil, it does something any oil cannot do. Energized by the Germ Process— patented—it bonds to every working part and stays up lastingly in the form of OIL-PLATING. Even grindstones can scarcely remove OIL-PLATING, so it certainly cannot drain down while your ear stands cold—no matter how long. Therefore the instant you want to start up, every engine part swiftly and suely slides into action on its ready OIL-PLATING—the lubricant that plainly can't be held back by any cold; that can't hold back your battery. The quick starts tell you there's no grinding wear in your OIL-PLATED engine. It won't get hoggish with your Conoco Germ Processed oil, another good straight reason for you to change to Your Mileage Merchant today.
