J<VrjfU*on— Ojiw J'H Till 8 P,M,~Woq(l Another service from the 24 Shell dealers of Alton 10 ways to beat the heat when you're on the road W HETHER you're planning a short trip to the beach, or a cross-country vacation in your car, the tips below can make your summer driving more enjoyable. Suggestion: tuck this page in your glove compartment for future reference. 1. Make sure your heater isn't "leaking" heat. If your car's heater valve is stuck open even slightly, it will let heat "leak" into the car all summer long. Have your Shell dealer check the valve and make sure it's closed tight. 2. Keep your radiator clean. Debris in your radiator can cut cooling efficiency drastically. For a really complete cleaning job, let your Shell dealer use compressed air From his tire hose to blast debris out. 3. Kill windshield glare. Ever notice how much summer sunshine bounces into the windshield off a shiny' dashboard shelf? There is a simple and inexpensive way to kill this glare. Just drape a dark cloth across the shelf. 4. Break up your trip, Summer heat drains your energy. Stop frequently to rest, stretch your legs and have a look at the scenery. You'll feel better when you get back on the road. And you'll probably drive more safely, 5. Increase idling speed occasionally when you're stuck in traffic on hot days, You'll turn the fan faster, speed up the flow of engine coolant—and reduce temperatures under the hood. This can help keep your car from overheating. 6. Have your oil level checked every time you stop for gasoline. A full crankcase of oil helps cool your engine as it lubricates, so it's extra-important to keep your oil level up in the summertime. Suggestion : Next time you need oil, try Shell X-100* Premium, the remarkable oil that fights 5 threats to engine life. 7. Slow down and save your tires, High speeds on sizzling roads wear tires out fast. At 80 miles an ho.ur you get only one-fijth of normal tread wear. Moderate speeds are much easier on your tires, and your nerves, See tip #8 below to avoid the hot weather trouble that spoiled this family's (tin. 8. Don't pump the accelerator if your car won't start after a short stop. The engine is probably flooded. Pumping only makes it worse. Instead, ivait a few minutes, press the accelerator -pedal all the way to the floor and hold it there while* you work the starter. NOTE: You're not likely to have this problem if you keep Super Shell's Hot Weather Blend in your tank. Super Shell's Hot Weather Blend works to fight engine flooding—also vapor lock, a summertime driving problem that causes rough run- ning, power loss and stalls. We vary our Super Shell formula as many as 8 times a year to take the weather into account. 9. Plan to reach your overnight stops before 4 o'clock. You'll avoid the local rush-hour traffic and the late afternoon heat, And you'll have your pick of hotels and motels at this early hour. 10. Keep a light coat or sweater handy. The steamier the day, the more chilling the contrast when you step into an air- conditioned restaurant or motel. Take a light coat or sweater inside with you, to keep comfortable and ward off the sniffles, ALTON SHELL DEALERS DE-BUNK A MYTH ABOUT CAR CARE It's a myth that you should let some air out of your tires when traveling on a hot day Today's tires are built to take the extra pressure that builds up during hot weather driving. So, don't deflate them on hot days-or you may find them very low when they cool off. Do get your Shell dealer to check your tires carefully before you start a trip. Proper pressure will decrease chances of tire trouble and help your tires last Ipnger. That's the real hwdown. You can count on your local Shell dealer (or straight facts and honest work, See him regularly.
