Standard Oil was declared a monopoly and broken up. Among the company assets that were divided up was the right to use the well-known 'Standard' brand name. Most of these "Baby Standards" kept using the popular "Red Crown" and "White Crown" gasoline brands, as well as "Polarine" Motor Oil. When the 'Ethyl' additive became popular, most Standards adopted it. Vacuum's "Mobiloil" products were commonly used by many Standards. Esso Motor Oil gained wide distribution. The former Standards banded together in 1930 to form the Atlas Corporation, maker of tires, batteries, and other automotive accessories (TBA) that were provided to Standard and Standard-related stations of all stripes from the Atlantic to the Pacific. As part of the Breakup, Standard Oil of Kentucky (Kyso) was awarded Kentucky, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi.
