Don’t waste gas, says Rube Goldberg

GRANDMA (A), KNITTING PAIR OF SOCKS, PULLS LATCH (8), CAUSING JACK-IN-THE-BOX (C) TO POP OUT AND HIT TEETER — BOARD (0), DROPPING LARGE STEAK (E) ON TOP OF CAR — LION (F) DIVES FOR STEAK, LIFTING 300-POUND GENTLEMAN (G) AND ALLOWING POWERFUL SLING- SHOT (14) TO PROPEL CAR AHEAD — IF YOU CAN’T GET A STEAK, STAY HOME AND BUY WAR BONDS INSTEAD, SO OUR BOYS CAN BRING HOME THE BACON.

How motor oil can save you gasoline

Only about one of every four gallons of gas you use actually moves your car. The rest is “wasted” overcoming air resistance and friction, and in producing heat. If sludge causes piston rings to leak and valves to stick, additional power is lost. Under today’s conditions, only the best oil can resist sludge formations so your engine will stay clean and easy on gas.

PennZoil is refined from pure Pennsylvania oil especially to reduce friction and engine deposits. It helps you get every possible mile out of that vital fourth gallon of gas. Next time specify PennZoil — and be sure to sound your Z!

Save gas for fighting engines… keep your car in condition by sounding your Z for Pennzoil.

Don’t wait for belts to break! Usually, a broken fan belt stops the water pump and generator. Engines overheat and batteries run down. Maintaining proper tension and keeping belts free from oil will lengthen their life.
