Let the truth of this fact sink in. Even if gasoline and tires were plentiful, cars are not. There will be no new cars for the duration. And every mile you drive, today and tomorrow and the day after, is an irreplaceable withdrawal from the Nation's bank of total transportation miles. That is why your Uncle Sam is talking like a Dutch uncle when he tells you to care for your car for your country. You must protect and even pamper your car to coax every last bit of mileage from its aging engine and chassis. Phillips 66 Service Wardens are pledged to do their utmost to perform all services which will improve the efficiency of your cat and lengthen its life. Remember, the car which is driven this winter with tires unchecked . . . with battery un- inspected ... with friction points unlubricated... may literally be running at the expense of the Nation's war effort. n/P 1 . 6 Pn '"'ps 66 Service Warden is waiting at every Phillips 66 Service Station, ready and anxious to do his part to help you "Guard America's Mileage."
