Neat picture! What is "heavy" gasoline?
zerolene is oil not gas..charley
Ahh, thanks, that clears it up.
OK, I'll bite; what exactly is "Zerolene"? Never heard of it.
Nice pic Jay, Thanks!
What's with the goofy hats?
What's up with the hats?
It's not just the hats, .... it's the slacks and shirts too. Looks like people from 1922 and 1962 met on the street for a photo.
Twilight Zone ?
Someone will know when Zerolene came out or you can google it but here is what we sold in the 60's.
As for the outfits I think they are Bikers rather than Model T guys. %0/.
I used to use Zeroline oil. It was sold at Chevron Stations. Standard Oil of California. Now all their stations are called Chevron Stations. Used to be the stations owned by the oil company were Standard Stations and those franchised were Chevron Stations.
I still remember the ads on T.V. and the announcer saying- "Available at you nearby Chevron-Standard Station".
I don't think I've ever seen a Red Crown gasoline sigh.
There is an advertisement next to the Zerolene sign on the banner.
i have 3 or 4 red crown sighs.but pics don't work for me. Charley
Names on sweaters and funny hats...Frat reunion?
According Old Auto News, it was called Zerolene because the oil was free-flowing at zero degrees. Similar to 0W-30 or 0W-40 today. It was oil diluted with solvents. Hey, just like MMO.
