Looks like some sort of specific gravity device to check gasoline when it is delivered and convert gals with specific gravity reading to actual tanker delivery.

It's called a hydrometer and it is testing the specific gravity of gasoline at the specified temperature to ensure the proper alchohol(octaine?)percentage. There is a similar device used by distileries to check proof. We have one where I work that is used to check green liquor density. It has a thermometer and correction chart built into the center of the device.
