I have read on the forum that the darker green, or grass green was the main color. I have also seen a kind of blue-green on some the signs and or pumps. The same with the white. Did they change colors at a some point or am I possibly seeing fade. The pictures I am posting I found while doing a search and I do not own these items I am just using them as examples. Which green is corrects

Thank you for the answer that would help explain the color on the pump I am restoring.

That pump looks like it has a late 50's early 60's Cities Service paint scheme on it. Looks like the second to last scheme (solid green and solid red) used before changing to Citgo.

Thanks for the answers, I am researching the company as I am. Ot as familiar with them pretty much every thing I have is either Texaco or Indian Motorcycle so I am branching out.
