Trying to figure out what this template is called? If you read the inscription it is basically a guide to let you know if the spout you are using is leaded or unleaded

Welcome to Oldgas. EPA mandated that unleaded gas had to be available by 1974 in order to be compatible with 1975 model cars that had catalytic converters.

It seems that Amoco had introduced unleaded gasoline in the 1930's as a premium fuel. Despite Amoco being owned by Standard of Indiana, it was solely available at Amoco stations in the Eastern US until at least the late 1950's or early 1960's. The photo is of a 1960's-era pump decal used by Amoco.

Welcome to OldGas! I will take a shot and call what you have a nozzle gage?
Also was white gas the same as unleaded?
