The mere stopping of your engine always leaves it stuffed with vile fumoa and dilute acids — the ever-present products of combustion. And there they stay. Formerly these sources of corrosion were kept mostly cleared out, because you drove frequently and fast. But now in saving coupons and tires you may not soon use your car again, and you don't make those long speedy runs that maintained normal engine heat a good while, to help drive acids off. That's why harmful leftovers in the cylinders nowadays are serious. But you can combat their dirty work by keeping your engine internally OIL-PLATED How? Just change to Conoco N^» motor oil this Spring. It's made under U. S. Patent No. 1,944,941, covering an added modern synthetic in Conoco N">, vhose proved purpose is to give inner engine parta their preservative layer of OIL-PLATING. And like the more familiar platings that arrest the attacks of mere •water, this OIL-PLATING powerfully tends 'to arrest acid action . . . inner corrosion of precious parts that often can't be promptly replaced today. Yet you pay only an everyday price for Conoco NM». Change for Spring at Your Mileage Merchant's Conoco station.
