A blue American fuel tank, but off what?

"Gasoline" instead of fuel or petrol convinces me it's from the USA.

"Panther (?) 2 + 1/2 HP. cast iron sleeve" I think.

No fancy tap or filter did I find, I sometimes use this as a small tank when working on motorbikes. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi All,

Hi All,

I suspect it may be from a Ransomes Typhoon as from what I understand some of these were fitted with a Clinton 'Panther' 2 1/2hp 2 stroke. 

King regards,

Sir Chook
