I believe that Hy Red was a brand of Midwest Oil.


Good oil cans don't wait for people, people wait for them.

Hy Red was the brand name used by Mid-Western Petroleum Company, and Indianapolis independent that possibly had some ties to Des Moines based Superior 400. Not much is known from this brand, nor do we know what happened to the company. Several globes are known, but only in old photos.

There is an old Hy Red station in the town I live in, Greentown, IN. It was still being used as a gas station into the seventies with an outdoor lube rack. I will get some pictures of it and post them tomorrow.
