Continuing to Drive With Winter Oil Costs You Money Daily • It's high time you changed to a heavier motor oil—as an economy move! Lighter oils are subject to faster and faster consumption as the mercury continues to rise. Bf.-Mck-o, if you have been using ordinary oil the chances are that there is trouble-making sludge in your crankcase right now. You know how the ugly mess called Sludge fouls the oil filter and lines—makes piston rings stick and causes costly pumping of oil— slows down valve action, bringing wasteful loss of gasoline power. So get rid of sludge, once and for all, by having your crankcase drained at a Standard Oil station —then refill with Iso=Vis "D", the anti-sludge motor oil. You'll have an economical, sludge-less summer aud a clean, lively, efficient engine. ISO*VIS"D" 25c oq , PLUS FEDERAL TAX 1 C o qf. STANDARD Oil Also Distributors of Atias Tires 26Caqt.
