Anyone know what this was used for, maybe old fuel truck? Has a number on top and bottom and also marked Turl NY .about 11" in diameter 15" high.

It's very similar to the top of old carbide acetylene generators. Water would be metered from this top glass cylinder to a bottom tank with carbide in it, making acetylene gas. I have a complete unit of one of these, but it's stored away where I can't get a photo. Google "carbide gas generator" and look at images. I might be wrong on my assessment here, but my unit's glass cylinder is about the same size as yours.

Sam is right! I have seen several old acetylene generators, and they all used a glass cylinder like this one.
