Three color 7 3/4" x 11 3/4" ad that talks about How and Why the New Texaco Motor Oil is so free from impurities. There is a picture of a somber farmer driving his tractor and the headline claimed that "He solved a problem for the Oil Refiner". It turns out that Furfural which is found in oats, corn, wheat, cotton seed and sugar cane can be added to oil and becomes a perfect cleanser. The text describes what happens to an engine which is running with oil that is full of impurities and how much of a better job of lubrication this New Texaco Motor Oil, priced at only 25 cents a quart, will do for your tractor or your automobile. The ad also indicates that Texaco was sponsoring Eddie Cantor every Sunday night on Columbia Network.

Black and white 7 1/2" x 11 3/4" ad for their Modern Oil. The ad has a picture taken at the gas pump of a Texaco station. The driver of the car parked at the pump and the attendant are both standing by the rear of the car, leaning toward each other as if sharing a secret. The attendant is pointing toward the can of Havoline Oil that he is holding in his hand and he tells the customer "For that modern motor, you want this modern oil...It's distilled".

Full color 8" x 11 1/2" ad for the New Texaco Motor Oil. The headline in the ad says that "You can't get a better oil at 25cents". At the top of the ad is a post card written from Bill to Mr. J. J. Barnett. Bill writes that J.J. is right about that new Texaco motor oil and he hasn't bought a quart of oil since he left about 1063 miles ago. The bottom of the ad is entitled "Reason - for the technically minded" and it says to give the credit to the addition of Fur-fur-al which was a "remarkable oil purifier". That is not something that I have heard about in the days since.
