Didn't Sonoco have one of the first of these, where you could blend 2 grades
to get 6 or 8 distinct price points?

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.
