What is likely the earliest year visible pumps started to move from a dry hose system to a wet hose system?
Service stations flipped order of gallon markers(0-10gal) and converted to wet hose system( 10gal-0) utilizing a newer squeeze nozzle handle.

Do we know when the squeeze nozzles were first being sold into the market?

My Roman is dry hose and has Zero at top & 10 at bottom. Ascending or descending numbers is not a factor in wet/dry delivery.

Wet/Dry depends on which end of the hose the shut off is located. With dry hose, the shut off is at the base of the cylinder and used the "banana" nozzle. The hose is dry at beginning and end of fuel delivery. Wet hose will have a shut off incorporated in the nozzle. The hose is wet (full) at the beginning and end of fuel delivery.

The orientation of the gallon numbers simply means the cylinder was full or empty at the beginning of the transaction. With zero at top, the cylinder was filled to capacity before delivery. With zero at bottom, the cylinder was filled only with the number of gallons the customer requested.

Morgan, 100% agree with your statement after looking at my 10 gal cylinder put back together w/ gallon markers installed.
Much easier to visualize vs. looking at a bunch of disassembled parts on the ground.
