Here is my last Pure item. The Purelube and Hi-Speed bank.



Does anybody know the history of Tiolene Motor Oil? I know that it was made by the Tiona Oil Company in Binghamton, N.Y.

Did Pure Oil buy them out?

Thanks
Randy

I really like the "Pep" hose on the matchbook. What's the vintage of the "Ask me" buttons?

I'm not sure about the year for the "Ask Me"
buttons,but Dirty Dan the Carbon Man can be dated to the early to late thirty's. Pictures shown below are dated 1935,1936. I believe the Ask Me buttons are late thirtys to early fortys. Hi-Speed used the Carbon man around 1938 I believe on their maps.




Notice in last picture Dirty Dan "steals power" Carbon Conquered with Super Solvenized Woco Pep.Dirty Dan's done!

Here is little bit of information about Dirty Dan.

The cartoon character Dirty Dan the Carbon Man was created for the Pocahontas Oil Company (Blue Flash Gasoline) from Cleveland, Ohio. It was used for advertising their “Solvenized Blue Flash” gasoline. Dirty Dan used only on the early Blue Flash Hi-Speed maps. Later Hi-Speed maps he was not used. Solvenized (solvent) was an additive designed to dissolve carbon in your engine. It was from the Lubrizol Company.
Hickok Oil (Hi-Speed) bought out the Pocahontas Oil about 1934-35. Hickok did not advertise it’s gasoline as “Solvenized” they used “Ex-Carbon” instead. Since Pure was a minor stock holder of Hickok Oil…. Pure Oil (Purol Pep and Woco-Pep)adopted the “Solvenized” process for their advertising. The rest is Hickok Oil and Pure Oil history.

I hope this helps..about Dirty Dan.

Randy
