A Brooklands Test.

An interesting test was recently carried out at Brooklands to demonstrate the value of the Germ process of lubrication manufacture. It is the opinion of Germ Lubricants Ltd. that neglect shows up the best in an oil, and for the purposes of the test two 10 h.p. 4-cylinder Austins were taken and run to destruction, one being lubricated by a staialard first .grade oil, and the other by ordinary Germ Oil, as purchased by the public.

The cars were driven round the track until the total mileage was 500 miles, at an average speed of 30 m.p.h. Then the sumps were drained and refilled with the appropriate oil. After a further 50 miles at 40 m.p.h. the sumps were then drained completely, and the oil filter assembly removed. The mileometers were put back to ;era and the cars were then towed to the hill end of the finishing straight.

Both ears were then driven at a speed of 30 m.p.h., being preceded and followed by observers. After covering 9.6 miles the car lubricated with ‘first-grade oil came to a standstill with an internal breakage, but the other test car lubricated with Germ Oil, continued to run until 16 miles had been covered Since all the Oil had been drained, i.e., the Germ oil film resisted dislodgement for a distance of 6.4 miles further than that accomplished by a first-grade oil under identical conditions.
