Six strictly stock cars of the medium priced class, and sis different brands' of oil of the sarae S. A. E. grade were used in frr»s test to prove the motor protection and consumption of each oil. Simultaneously the cars •wrere driven for an average of 500 miles a day at 50 miles an hour until the motors refused to operate. On the 4th clay, three cars were out of the test, Oil No. 4 had gone 1,713.2 miles; Oil No. 6 had completed 1,754.4 rmlea and Oil No. 5 had finished 1,815.9 miles. On the 5th day, OH No, 1 failed, after gprr.g 2.266.8 miles. This left two oils competing. In defiance they ran the 6th, 7th,. and Sth days, when Oil No. 3, after totaling 3,318.8 miles, wrecked its motor and crept to a stop. Oil No, 2—New and Improved Conoco Germ Processed Motor Oil piled up a total of 4,729 miles! More than 3.000 miles farther than the first oil to go out, and more t-h»r> 1,400 miles farther than the last oil to faiL New and Improved Conoco Germ Processed Motor Oil has much greater vitality, or Ska strength, to withstand great pressures and increased beat of modem automobile motors.
