About the time you think you saw it all. The info below is from the owner...

The Story behind the FANTASY gas pump is The Crypto Electric Co. Made their first gasoline pump. It was produced as a 4 way pump that could pump four different types of fuel. Their problem was that at night they didn't have a way of lighting up the clockface dials so they used candles!!! And here lies the problem!!!! The candles would ignite the fuel and a number of gas stations burned down. This FANTASY pump was taken out of service before it burned down. The Crypto electric company was bankrupt before they even got a chance. We that's all I have thought up on this. And I am sticking to it
