The same Exxon engine oil that we have shown can save fuel in heavy-duty diesel trucks has now been shown to save fuel in gasoline engines. We pitted our 15W-40 XD-3 against a leading 15W-40 competitive oil in three Ford Model F-100 half-ton pickups with 6- cylinder, 300-cu. in. gasoline engines. The trucks were driven at 55 mph in a series of highway tests. The results, at a 95 per cent confidence level, showed XD-3 has an average 3.3 per cent (+- 1 per cent) mileage im- provement advantage over the com- petitive crankcase oil. This is similar to the 3 per cent improvement previously noted in extensive diesel truck tests. Figure what 3 per cent of your gasoline and diesel bill adds up to. Figure the savings from using one oil in all your equipment. Then call your Exxon representative for the fuel economy and rugged protection of XD-3 engine oil. Or write us for information: Call or write Bradford Oil or Pratt's Propane BRADFORD OIL CO., Inc. for its 1981-1982 Poster Child. The goal of the March of Dimes is to prevent birth defects and to see the day when every child may start life with the precious gift of good health. The Vermont Chapter March of Dimes is looking for a special child, one born with a visible birth defect, who, with his or her family, would be willing and able to join the March of Dimes in its fight against birth defects and help us reach our goal. The Poster Child should he between the ages of 6 and 9, photogenic, and have an outgoing personality. The child must be able, both medically and physically, to travel, as there will be several events to attend in different areas throughout the state. If you have or know of a child who meets these criteria and whose family would be interested in having him or her be the 1981-1982 Poster Child, please contact the March of Dimes. For further information, contact H. Earl Jackson, Executive Director, Vermont Chapter March of Dimes, 79 Main Street, Montpelier, Vermont, 05602, or telephone 223-6,322.
