Neither must you expeel all the good qualities of motor oil to be found in oil
made from a single hind of crude oil. CThe newest idea in motor oil for present
day high-compression, high-speed motors, is a skillful blend made from two
kinds of crude oil. . . one with a paraffine base, the other a naphthene base.
