Remote Pumping System

In a gasoline station or other fueling facility, a system used for pumping motor fuel from an underground storage tank to a dispenser

In a remote pumping system, the pump is not located in the dispenser. Rather it is positioned inside, or just above, the underground tank. The pump is actuated when the nozzle is removed from the dispenser and a switch lever turned on. The pumping action pushes product from the tank, through the piping, to the dispenser. 

Most modern pumping systems in retail marketing operations are of the remote variety.
