    Wondering if anyone here has a possible ID on this tank. Its in a local antique store and if I can get a match for a stove, I may pick it up to reunite it with whatever possible stove it belongs to.

    @Doc Mark
    Looks to me like a tank to a range.

    What writing is on the gauge?

    The gauge has a plastic face and is definitely not the same time period as the tank. Tank has a lead seal on the pump to tank connection, but rubbery gasket under the fuel cap.

    Hi, @Randy Field ,

    Neat little tank! It's too small for most of the old cabin ranges and such from the 1920-1930 era, IMHO. But, for the asking price, I would recommend that you pick it up, and make it into something fun!! Very interesting find for you, Sir! Let us know what you end up doing, and if you secure the tank, what your plans for it might be. Good luck, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Yeah Doc, I dont need the tank but would pick it up if I knew what it went to so I could get it to someone with the proper stove. Honestly, I dont need to spend the money, or need ANOTHER project. It could make a cool frankie though. It is a great old tank and is in incredible condition aside from the cheapo aftermarket gauge. I do suspect its an old stove tank of some sort, but cant find a match. It does look like the Swedish style tanks though the little thumb screw is aluminum so probably not as old as I’d like to think it is.
    Anyone else have any ideas on its original use?

    The tank looks like it has a big hole in it next to the burner fuel feed fitting.
