WEEKLY MOTOR NOTES. I Being something of a motorist myself I know quite well that you can tell me without an instant's hesitation exactly how many miles your car can do to the gallon. You know her cylinder capacity to a c.c.; you know just what kind of hill she can negotiate on top you know a hundred and fifty three other things about her manners and morals; and you know that tyres are the costliest item in her wardrobe. Has it ever occurred to you, however, that there are very definite possibilities in the direction of tyre economy ? Have you ever realised that while saying rude things about a lump sum of money will never cause it to grow beautifully less, a careful examination of the items of which it is composed would often prove your annoyance to have been fully justified ? Probably you have never given the matter thought, but it is a fact nevertheless that you can make either a very decent reduction on your tyre bill, or a very distinct improvement in your tyre service, by checking the mileage of each cover used and acting upon the advice those mileage records will give. Why have you ever bothered to find out how many miles your car can travel on a gallon of fuel ? Isn't it because you want to know what she costs per mile? If it is not, then why growl when the price of petrol is advanced ever so little ? Again, why do you prefer this brand of fuel to that ? Surely because you have found that it gives better results. Altogether you have been at some pains to find out for yourself quite a lot about petrol âand your discoveries have paid you. I suggest, therefore, that you should do the same thing with your tyres; especially in view of the fact that Michelin will provide you with a Record Book, free of charge. Michelin are making a special offer of this Recotd Book simply because they are so completely confident that Michelin Tyres are better and more economical than any other make. They base this confidence on a huge series of road tests and they invite you to put their claim to practical proof. With this book you can calculate exactly how much each cover you use costs per mile and so arrive not only at your tyre mileage cost but at that make of tyre which yields you the gretest return on your outlay. The whole of the Michelin energy is con- centrated upon Quality. Every Michelin effort is directed towards perfecting the pneumatic tyre and rendering it more eco- nomical and it is Michelin's idea that every motorist should be given the best possible opportunity for proving by actual results that Michelin Tyres do undoubtedly cost less per mile than any other. If you will simply write the words "Mileage Record" on a postcard, add your name and address and post to the Michelin Tyre Company Ltd., Fulham Road. London, S.W. a complimentary copy of the book will be sent to you by return. BIBENDUM. I
