About Signal Gasoline Company
The Signal Gasoline company was founded by oil tycoon Samuel B. Mosher in 1922. In 1928, when business expanded, the company was renamed Signal Gas & Oil. Signal was the largest independent oil company on the West Coast by the 1950s. The Los Angeles based oil producer and refinery entered the retail gas market in 1932 under the Signal brand. They were partnered with Standard of California since the early years. In 1958 when Signal merged with Hancock Oil, they rebranded the stations under the Handcock name. Standard Chevron continued the Signal brand until 1965, when they change marketing to Humble Oil and rebranded Signal into Enco. Handcock was discontinued when Signal markets were sold off in 1970. Ethyl was an anti-knock agent added as an inexpensive octane booster to gasloine in the 1920s until the mid-1970s.
