PETROL AND OIL CERTIFYING THE BRAND [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 9 January 1929
PETROL AND OIL CERTIFYING THE BRAND Before the practice of scaling kerb side pumps, as now carried out by a leading oil' company, considerable doubt lfas experienced by many motorists on the question as to whether the petrol was supplied to them true to brand, and in sonic instances the doubts were, of course, justified. The substitution of an inferior grade of petrol and oil might not make itself manifest until later, when an overheat ed engine or other unsatisfactory per formance is au indication of trouble, and it is undoubtedly a great boon to motorists to bo able to have complete confidence that the spirit and oil pur chased by them are strictly true to grade and quality. In order to ensure this confidence, the Shell Company, when initiating the supply of lubricat ing oil in bulk to car owners, decided to seal its bulk oil equipments as well as its kcrbsidc pumps. Under this system, the Shell Com pany ^can and does accept full respon sibility for the quality of the spirit and o...

The barracuda is recognised by all of the natives of the Caribbean Gulf region as more apt to attack man thaii is t)i-- shark.
