Detroit (Oregon) still had pumps that had to be switched on from inside, and had analogue dials until it burned down a couple years ago.

Apparently there's the latest style pumps now. I've never purchase fuel there before, because that just indicates poor planning. I have used the restroom and bought ice there before.

I don't remember the last time I saw a pump with analogue dial, other than at some facilities where the fuel dispensers were used only for a captive fleet.

Cant see a station setting the pump for free fuel just as a business practice, doesn't make sense.

Lotta variables you could be missing, formulation, air density, temps, loose step ring wheel nut.......
