Ethyl Gasoline Corporation - History
Genuine antique sign for Ethyl gas additive from the Ethyl Corporation founded in 1923. Formed by General Motors and Standard Oil of New Jersey (Esso) for the manufacturing of the patented fuel additive tetraethyllead (TEL). This antiknock gasoline additive was based on the work of Charles Kettering and other chemical engineers. The 1970s and 1980s saw a gradual move toward unleaded gasoline and the increased awareness and concern of lead contamination and pollution. However, TEL is still used as a fuel additive in some racing and aviation gasoline.
