Polmifie's double duty
and twin economies
Lubricating oil must do two things enable the
engine to delier maximum power protect every
bearing and engaging part against wear.
The quick, complete combustion of ful ger.tvates maximum
power. But it requires a gas-tiht oil seal between piston
riruvs and cylinder walls to hold this power to itj work.
And to get maximum work every bearing and vi imaging part
must offer the least possible resistance to movement must
stay in perfect fit and alignment, cushioned against wear and
friction by a protective oil film.
Polarine meets every requirement. It maintains its body and
its lubricating qualities, practically unchanged, under all
weather and operating conditions. It assures full compression
and power gets the biggest mileage out of every gallon of
gasoline. It keeps down wear, prevents vibration, breakage
and big overhauling and repair expense.
Polarine is made in four grades light, medium heavy, heavy
and extra heavy but only one quality. Get the proper grade
for your car next time you buy clean -burning Hed Crown
