Nice find!!  Might not be off a tail dragger, they had two marks depending on if you were on the ground or in the air.

Truck/tank makes sense. I tried searching by fuel capacity and most planes were around 250 gal.

Pretty similar to the one on the http://spitfirespares.co.uk/Instruments%20fuel%20gauges%208.html page for a Halifax 789 FG.
