Texaco Oils to Reikjavik, Iceland, interesting.
This shipment included a quantity of Texaco
Motor Oil, showing how far the automobile has
gone to the very rim of civilization, and giving some
idea of the extent of Texaco Service.
We are told that Icelanders are careful buyers.
They have to be, for it is a long time between
boats, and should any mechanical trouble arise, they
would have a serious wait for parts or repairs.
That is why they buy Texaco Motor Oil and
other lubricants to keep their engines in top-notch
condition, and as free from wear as possible.
These same qualities will aid in the efficient ope-
ration of your automobile, tractor, ice machine, sep-
arator, or any other kind of machine.
