Red Crown gasoline was a brand of gasoline that was introduced in the United States in the early 20th century. The brand was originally owned by the Standard Oil Company of California (now Chevron Corporation), which began marketing Red Crown gasoline in 1911.
The name "Red Crown" referred to the red crown logo that was used to brand the gasoline. The logo featured a red crown with the word "Red Crown" written underneath it in white letters. The logo was designed to evoke a sense of prestige and quality, as well as to make the brand easily recognizable.
Red Crown gasoline was marketed as a high-quality gasoline that was suitable for use in all types of automobiles, including the new high-compression engines that were becoming popular at the time. The gasoline was also marketed as being free of impurities and additives that could harm engines.
Over the years, Red Crown gasoline became one of the most popular gasoline brands in the United States, and it was sold at Standard Oil Company of California (Chevron) gas stations throughout the country. However, in the 1950s and 1960s, as competition in the gasoline market increased, the Red Crown brand began to lose market share, and it was eventually phased out by Chevron in the 1970s.
