<VV> Gasoline gasolene?

The big push for the single hose pumps is they are typically "blender" 

A blender pump just uses two tanks, one lowest octane, the other the 
highest octane. The pump then blends the two together if a mid grade is 
selected. Saves infrastructure, as only two tanks/system are needed 
instead of three.

Or one could blend many different octanes to confuse the average 
motorist!  See picture linked below.
