    IDK, cause pennies sound cheap? Far as quantity goes, anybody whose stabled just a couple farm animals find out quick how much collects overnight.
    Not same topic, but related. I partnered with some horse owners long ago. Despite they'd been owners for decades, an afternoons work would disappear by the next day after work, causing them dismay. Like repairing fences where horses had cribbed [nervous chewing on fence wood] for example.
    As explanation, telling the girls how it be so extensive. "They have ALL day!"

    IIRC this is what we also had; not filling stations but 'Service Stations'. Washing window glass, checking out tires, oil, coolant, drivers daughter. . .

    This is one of my all-time favorite pics in this thread. The car, the gas pumps, the sunroof, the skates, the hats, the haircuts, the horse, the barrel, the doorway. Even if they staged it all (lots of these work crew pics are staged) - good for them, they nailed it.

    Looking at the sign, I wonder if this company could be part of the Mobil gas that we use to know.

    Has to be, same logo, just spelled different in foreign markets. But how does a economy car like a VW warrant high octane fuel?

    It is like ordering a medium drink at a fast food place, they don't have small size. The "Super"
    is probably the low octane and the high octane is probably "Super Duper", "Super Xtra", or some such meaningless iteration of fancy name.
