One method of cut
ting motoring costs
Low gracje oil, or oil of unsuitable body,
is the direct cause of fully ninety per
cent of all overhauling, repair and re
placement costs. It is also frequently
responsible for the low mileage many
an automobilist complains of and blames
on his gasoline.
Finding just the correct lubricating oil
for your engine will save you a lot of
expense and bother.
Polarine is the highest quality motor oil you
can buy. Its stability under high engine heat
provides a fuel-tight and gas-tight seal in the
cylinders which insures maximum power and
mileage from gasoline. Its smooth, continuous
film protects bearings and engaging parts
against wear, vibration and breakage.
Polarine is made in four grades light, me
dium heavy, heavy and extra heavy but only
one quality. Get the- proper grade for your
car next time you buy clean-burning Red
Crown Gasoline and you will start cutting
down motoring costs.
