For Stretching
You've been hearing a lot la-
tely about the gasoline situation
and how it might affect the use
of your automobile.
Here are some good ways to
stretch gasoline mileage:
1. Keep Your Tires Fully Inflat-
ed. If tires are underinflated,
they put so much extra drag on
the engine that you'll use up to
6% more gasoline. Correct tire
inflation can save the average
driver up to 200 liters a year.
2. Avoid High Speeds. Driv-
ing at 110 Kph. can take 22%/
more gasoline per km than driv-
ing at 80. There's a simple scien-

tific reason. When you double
your speed, your car has to over-
come 4 times as much wind re-
sistance. So don't fall into the
trap of thinking you're just using
gasoline fast. You're also using
a lot more of it.
3. Get Regular Tune-Up. A
complete tune-up, including new
spark plugs and ignition points,
can save the average driver up
to 650 liters of gasoline a year.
When your owner's manual or
emissions supplement says you
need new spark plugs, points,

Yuda Conserva Energia, Sigi Conseho

Pa Bo Rek Kilometrahe di Gasolin

Recientemente nos a tende
hopi tocante di e situation di
gasoline y com e por afecta e uso
di nos auto.
Siguiente ta algun bon mane-
ra pa saca mas kilometrahe for
di gasoline :
1. Mantene Bo Tayernan Bon
Yend. Si tayernan no ta yenA
bon, nan ta pone asina tanto
mas peso ariba e motor cu lo
Bo usa te cu 6% mas di gasoline.
Correccion di yenamento di ta-
yer por haci cu e promedio di
chauffeur por spaar te cu 200
liter pa anja.
2. Evita Velocidadnan Halto.
Stuurmento na 110 Km pa ora
por haci Bo gasta 22% mas ga-
solin pa Kilometer cq si Bo
stuur na 80 Km. pa ora. Esey ta
un simple razon cientifico. Ora
cu Bo dobbel Bo velocidad, Bo
auto mester want cuatro biaha
mas resistencia na biento. Asina
cu no cai den e trampa di pensa
cu solamente ta liher Bo ta gas-
tando gasoline. Tambe Bo ta
usando hopi mas di dj6.
3. Laga "Tune-Up" Periodica-
mente. Un "tune-up" comple-
to, incluyendo "spark plugs" y
"ignition points" nobo, por spaar
pa e promedio chaufeur te cu
650 liter di gasoline pa anja.
Ora cu e manual di fabric of
suplemento di emisionnan ta bi-

sa cu Bo mester "spark plugs",
"points" nobo of otro servicio di
tune-up of emisionnan, kere nan.
4. Reemplaza Filters y check
tur equipo cu ta control polu-
cion regularmente. Un carbura-
tor su air filter sushi so por cos-
ta Bo tanto como 80 galon di
gasoline pa anja. Esaki tin e mes-
un efecto manera ora cu Bo ta
corre cu e "choke" parcialmen-
te cerrA.
5. No "Raise" Bo Motor pa
keinte'le. Mientras cu e ta friew,
e choke automatic ta tene'le
ariba un dieta bastante bon ca-
6. Paga e Motor mientras cu
Bo ta warda ariba un hende. Un
minuut cu e motor ta draai ta usa
mas gasoline cu local ta nece-
sario pa start e atrobe.
7. No Sali cu Rancada Fuerte.
Ora cu Bo sali despues di e
senjal di "stop", primi gasoline
moderadamente. Corda bon, esa-
ki no ta adrenaline, sino extra
gasoline cu ta haci bo auto bula
ora cu bo primi e pedal much
duro. Rancada rapido por au-
menta e uso di gasoline te casi
6% y ta gasta bo tayernan seve-
8. No Usa Bo Alrecondiciona-
do ora cu Bo no tin mester di
dje. Esaki por tuma suficiente
energia di motor pa usa casi 6
liter di gasoline den cada tanki
9. Stuur cu Mesun Velocldad.
Hopi chofer sin paga atencion ta
cambia presion di nan pia ari-
ba e pedal di gasoline. Prueba-
nan a demonstra cu esaki por
reduci economic di combustible.
Pero mas important cu tur,
Bo por yuda conserve energia
precioso door di evita corremen-
to innecesario. Esaki por ser ha-
ci door di observe e siguiente
sugerencianan :
Promer, dicidi si un viaha
cu auto ta berdaderamente ne-
cesario. Si e distancia ta corti-
co, evita di usa bo auto.
Usa bo telefoon unda ta po-
sibel envez di corre hopi kilo-
meter pa trata un asunto.
Reduci stuurmento pa pla-
cer na lo minimo.
Combina uso di bo auto un-
da ta possible, asina cu viahenan
di various persona por ser com-
binA y usando menos viahe.
Combina various viahenan
cortico den un solo viahe ca-
minda cu ta possible.

New Long-Neck Giraffe Truck Aids

In Fast Work at
The latest addition to Lago's
mechanical "zoo" is a heavy-
duty "giraffe" truck. With a 70-
ft. long articulated boom, the
new lifting equipment will be li-
terally looming over the other
four of its species, which have
a reaching capacity of only 35
A Mobile "Hi-Ranger" Aerial
Tower, it was acquired by the
Mechanical Engineering Divi-
sion for the Mechanical Refi-
nery Maintenance & Planning
Division. It will also be used ex-
tensively by the Equipment Ins-
pection Section personnel. One
of the most modern lifting equip-
ment now on the market, this
unit is mounted on a Ford-ma-
nufactured chassis while the
superstructure is made by Hobbs
International of Connecticut,
U.S.A. The unit includes a 700-
lb. capacity hydraulic bucket
which can accommodate two
men at a time with their required
tools and equipment.
Designed especially for use at
high elevations, it is most suit-
able here at Lago for inspect-
ion and repair work on tanks,
and other hard-to-reach high
structures. At the same time, it
eliminates the need for time-
consuming scaffold installation
and provides a much faster
operation. Easy to operate, this
"giraffe" has three lever con-
trols at the platform of the
truck to regulate vertical, hori-
zontal and swing movements.
A remote control lever in the

High Elevations
bucket permits one man to po-
sition the tower or boom at
any desired angle.
A special feature is the out-
rigger and boom interlock safety
system. The boom cannot be
operated unless the outriggers
or two "legs" of the "giraffe"
are extended to brace the struc-
ture for a maximum base sup-
Morris Hammond, a represent-
ative from Hobbs International,
spent a week here in December
to check out the unit's hydrau-
lic system and to train a group
of Mechanical personnel who
will be operating this easy-to-
handle heavy equipment. The
training sessions were conduct-
ed at Tank No. 914 in the Tank
Farm area to simulate actual
work situations in the future.
