In the 1890's, the tank wagons were usually pulled by one, two, and even three horses depending on the size of the tank and weight of the load. Capacity of the tanks varied from 300 to 550 gallons for the one and two horse wagons and 900 gallons for the three horse tank wagon (Hidy and Hidy, 1955). Hidy and Hidy (1955) mention that a Standard Oil (New Jersey) station serving Baltimore in 1892, had, "four tank wagons, three for kerosene and one for gasoline"; plus extra horses for relays.
