I don't know what oil company used it, but it was made by the "Oil Products Appliance Company (OPACO) of Maywood, Illinois. When I wrote my first gas pump book I used a lot of pictures of this type of dispensers, but in my last book I removed everything that was not gas pump related, but I do have some ads, so I would say your dispenser is probably from around 1930. Now, why is it green? Years ago these dispensers were sometimes painted colors depending on what was in the dispenser. green was many times used to indicate kerosene.

...OPACO is just the manufacturer's name...you might be able to tell from any vestiges of original decals on the pump...it's possible the oil company that used this lubester could be determined by the placement of the screw holes left by the now-absent sign...

Hi all, I picked up an old lubester today, and it’s awesome. But of course, the porcelain plate displaying whatever brand was used with it is gone. Is there any other way to identify what brand would’ve been on/in it? I have a few pictures (not the best). But it does say opaco on it and the lid has a sort of plus sign design in the metal (not sure if they were all like that). Thank you for the help.

Denver based, first coin operated gas pump for 24hr service. Tin signs can be found often. They all are missing an ugly snow Schroeder. Gas o mat was the last to use them

Sorry about that, I remembered reading in my research that Southwest's headquarters was moved to Austin around 2000-ish, but that would have been after the sale of the company; I guess I didn't even think about if it were still called Southwest.

Here are a few pics of what I picked up:


They all need a bit of work, but this is just my start of getting into the hobby... I purchased my first pump (the GOC) less than a month ago, then ran across the 70/72s while looking for parts for the GOC. Guess I'm a Southwest guy now!

Well this one will make it 3 and will be on display in the Dream Car Museum once it gets here. Are you able to say who's place you were at to see those other Starkeys. We have been through several major collections in Evansville and not seen any Starkeys yet.

Unfortunately we also tried to purchase a couple cash recorder pumps from the same collector but we could not meet on price.

NAFTA is Spanish for naphtha. "In a refinery, light naphtha is often blended directly into gasoline. However, its low octane and relatively high vapor pressure typically limit it to 5% or less of the gasoline pool."
