Hello Old Gasers,
I have been looking at old gas for the last year, but this is my first time registering. I hope this is where to ask a question. I recently purchased a 100gallon oil dispencer with a bowser pump on top. It is a riveted rectangular galvanized tank. On one end there is cast lid roughly one and half feet wide. I'm guessing that's where you fill it. At the other end there is a dip stick with a 3" cast top on it and a bowser pump and drain back tub. The bowser pump is the same as the bowser 70 pump on page 102 of Jacks book. Could some one please tell me anything about the oil dispenser???? Where it came from?? How old it is??? Where it would be used???etc...
Thank you

Welcome to Oldgas.com. The date on the Bowser 70 is 1901. It could have been put into service and in use for many years. A possible use would have been for a store to fill containers with lubricating or heating oil.

Send me an image attached to email and I'll post it here for you. shoptalk@oldgas.com
