Curb Pump Hose

The hose on a gasoline station dispenser.

The original gasoline dispensers were mounted next to the street on sidewalk curbs. The dispensers were referred to as “curb pumps,” and their hose was called “curb pump hose.” Although dispensers are no longer placed on curbs, many oil equipment people continue to refer to dispenser hose as curb pump hose.
