So, Sunoco was doing two extra blends as set up in John's pump... that must have been an impressive blend valve set up.
Thanks, Joe.

That's what I remember too, my Grandpa's Station only had 2 underground tanks.

Yes sir 2 tanks. There was no blending at the pump though. It was delivered regular and ethyl.  Daddy had a Gulf service station til our local jobber sold to Pure. Pure had their own store locally so daddy had to find a new supplier and he went to Sinclair which later sold to ARCO. When ARCO took over we had to add a new tank for diesel fuel and sold their race fuel in 5 gallon cans. 102 and 110 octane. We had a 100 gallon tank with a hand pump for kerosene too.

One of my neighbors owns a string of BP stations, and they only have two tanks (for gasoline) - regular (87 octane) and premium (93 octane); the mid-grade (89 octane) is created by blending the two in the pump.
