The Gravity Fed Reproduction Gas Pump is in the early style of a gasoline dispenser that used a hand operated pump to move gasoline from a nearby storage tank into the visible cylinder at the top of the pump. Once the cylinder was filled with gas, the customer would then place the gas nozzle into the tank of his vehicle. A valve on the pump would then be opened to allow gravity to feed gasoline into the tank. The amount of gasoline dispensed into the tank would be measured by the amount removed from the cylinder. This style of gas pump was used approximately around 1910 – 1930.
There are several ways this visible gas pump can be customized, including lots of options for the globe.
