ist who having conceived the idea that lubricating oil
properly treated could be made to properly and uni
formly assimulate with water or gasoline.
Cool Engine--No Carbon
Don't Be Deceived
LUMKI GAS does not make your gasolinek.burn- any
longer, neither does it make it more powerful! -... a
Lubri Gas is Lubrication
By the lubrication of machinery we reduce friction, by
the reduction of friction we reduce the amount of pow
er necessary to propel machinery; by reducing the
amount of power necessary to propel machinery we
can reduce the amount of fuel necessary to produce
sufficient power, hence more mileage.
by lubrication we " reduce friction; by reducing
friction we reduce resistance of machinery; by reduc
ing resistance we give machinery more POWElt.

wiH not stick or adhere to an oily surface.
Lubricating gasoline reaches the internal engine as a
vapor compared to a mist or fog in the air; thislubri
cnting vapor will not burn. When the explosion of the
gasoline vapor occurs then the vapor or mist of (Lubri
Gas) lubricating gosolino is sprayed throughout the
entire combustion chamber, thereby allowing perfect
expansion and contraction of the piston rings.
Carbon not being property that will stick or adhere to
an oily surface must of necessity move onward and is
forced by compression out of the inner part of the en
gine through the exhaust valve or pipe.
Lubri Gas Lubricating
Gasoline is Logical

By the reducing of friction we reduce heat; by the re
duction of heat we give you a cool engine You con t
boil water in your car if you use Lubri-Gas.
From August 25, and Including
Saturday Night, Sept. 1, 1917
we are going to sell lubricating gasoline at the regular
price, We earnestly request every automobile owner
in this city and' vicinity to buy lubricating gasoline
and try it for yourself.
We have added extra help and aro propared to give you
quick service and certainly it is worth your while to
try this wonderful product of merit and know for your
self if lubricating gasoline is what is claimed for it.
See the Demonstration
in our window. Let a gasoline engine expert explain
to you why lubricating gasoline is the gasoline you
will eventually buy and if your engine is not giving
you satisfaction let him explain to you why not.
Lubricating gasoline gives you perfect ignition, clean
spark plugs, joy and pleasure in driving, bettor nnd

lioiucmhor all this week, come early and start using
lubricating gasoline so you can havo ample timo to
give it a thorough test.
Our guarantee You can make as many miles with 1G0
gallons of lubricating gasoline as you can with 200
gallons regular gasoline. You are burning dollars j
why not save dollars?
