In 1925, the company advertised thusly:
“Specify Fry! When buying gasoline pumps be sure that you specify Fry. Fry has that rare combination of important essentials – simplicity, accuracy, speed, visibility, economy, and dependability. So don’t forget – when you buy – specify Fry. It is not an accident that the Fry plants have doubled and re-doubled their capacity in an effort to fill the ever increasing quantity of orders. Marketers and retailers of gasoline have found a distinct advantage in selling their well known brand via the well known Fry Visible Pump. The Fry pump has proven its accuracy under all conditions – has proven its dependability under all conditions – has proven itself to be fool-proof under all conditions. Wherever you find one or more Fry pumps in operation you find a constantly increasing gasoline business.”
At the end of the 1920's, Fry was bought out by the Wayne Company, and the name disappeared from gas pumps.
