Text from their 1914 ad.
The Zip runs 35 to 45 miles on a gallon of gasoline, 1,000 miles on a gallon of lubricating oil, 8,000 to 10,000 miles on a set of tires costing less than $40-at a speed of 40 miles an hour, affords a degree of safety at the highest speeds (on account of its low construction) that no other class of motor vehicle offers, goes through the worst kind of roads and rides as easily as only the very heaviest automobiles equipped with the finest shock absorbers.

In fact, the Zip is the perfect, practical cyclecar. Its record of road performance and the tests under which it has stood up are our proof. It travelled 200 miles further on a long distance test than any other cyclecar today has done, has crossed plowed fields, climbed hills that would stall many a big car and come through eager for more.
