Fill 'Er Up. Beck Computing Pump, 1948

From The Petroleum Handbook.  Compiled by Members of the Staff of the Royal Dutch Shell Group.  Third Edition.  London:  The Shell Petroleum Company Limited, 1948.

"A modern computor pump."  Either a mis-translation, or an indication that the spelling of the word "computer" was still in flux. (I'm not alone in wondering about this. So does the University of Cincinnati.  See Computor vs Computer.)
