Standard Oil Puts
New Fuel On Market
Embodies All .Adaptable (Tiarac-
teristics Of ‘Kiglifing Grade’
A new gasoline that embodies
all the characteristics of “Fight
ing Grade’’ aviation gasoline that
are usefully adaptable to auto
mobile motors is being announc
ed today by the Standard Oil
company of New Jersey, '.’his
new motor fuel, known as Aero-
type Esso, will be handled, effec
tive today, by every Esso station
from Maine to Louisiana.
"In the development of this
new fuel our pattern was ‘Fight-_
ing Grade’ aviation gasoline with That quantity of electrical
its slow starting features re
moved,’’ company officials said.
“Because it contains a scientifi
cally balanced proportion of each
of three major constituents of
gasoline—the light, intermediate
and heavy ends—it has many
distinctive features. In tests it
gave 20 per cent more power
than the best premium fuel on
the market to date, started cars
.‘>4 per cent more rapidly and
warmed up 11 per cent more
“Aerotype Esso, as this fuel is
known, is so refined that each
of these three most important
fractions of gasoline are permit
ted to reach maximum efficiency.
The light ends give quick start
ing. The intermediate ends pro
vide rapid warm up, instant ac
celeration and even distribution
of fuel to all cylinders. The
heavy ends, in the correct pro
portion, insure smooth perform
ance and add to the power of the
fuel. Heavy ends must be limit
ed, however, as if they are pres
ent in large amount, they will
cause dilution, knock, and poor
“The new Esso will continue
to contain our solvent oil which
is an exclusive patented product
which di.sBolve.s gum, resinous
and asphaltic (lepo.sits off rings,
pistons and valves, loosens car
bon and is not to be confused
with ordinary overhead lubri
can and the addition of the |
State.sville firm's stock makes
.his store here one of the most
completely stocked electric stores
in this section.
The work of moving the large
stock to his store here has been
in progress for several days and
more than a dozen truck loads
have already been moved with
more coming in daily. The stock
contains practically everything
carried by an electric company.
Mr. Duncan states that the
purchase of the Statesville firm
will enable him to pass on to his
customers at extremely low pric
es almost anything they need in
the electric line “Qd &sks any
body in need of electrical sup
plies to call at his store. He also
states that the addition of a
plies will enable him to give
even quicker service on contract
wiring and other electrical work.
I have been ordered by the Board of
Town Commissioners to advertise
and sell all real estate on which the
tax for the year 1933 has not been
paid. The sale has been postponed for
several months in o:^der to give tax
payers an opportura^ to settle, but
now the board has notified me to ad
vertise and sell. The delinquent list
will appear in the newspaper on
WEDNESDAY, DEC. 12,1934
Come jin and pay your 1933 tax be
fore your property is advertised.
You will save extra costs. I will be
glad to serve you at any time.
