"A gas station is a place where you sometimes fill the car, but more often drain the kids." (Anon.) Mobil + Mobile is found 13 times in OhioLINK, making it somewhat less than a high-test typo—more like a regular one—according to the Ballard list. "Car, car, C-A-R," we used to chant as children, playing in the rural road that would only see an automobile come by about once every half an hour. I have one of those fuzzy but persistent memories of reading a book in my youth that featured the ubiquitous flying red horse from the Mobil gas station. I can't recall the title anymore and would be very grateful if someone out there knows what it is.
(Like the mystery kids' book, I also can't remember where I found this lovely image of the Mobil Pegasus logo, but I think it would make a great mobile to hang over the bed.)
