Johnson and Associates, Pump Exchange and Ark Petroleum Equipment each offer a variety of used and refurbished models of equipment such as gasoline dispensers, point of sale systems and leak detection devices from manufacturers such as Gilbarco, Bennett and Wayne. The companies typically purchase and remove these pumps from gas stations going out of business.

As of 2015, the Pump Exchange offers used gas pump models ranging in price from $4455 to $7605. More expensive units are typically newer, in better condition and with a larger array of features. The Dresser Wayne Ovation B23, for example, is more expensive because it features numerous touch screens for its integrated point of sale system. It also features a single nozzle system that switches between grades of gasoline internally, unlike older models that have separate nozzles for each type.

The Ark Petroleum Equipment site offers older single-grade gas pumps and dispensers, such as the Gasboy 9153A. This model lacks a credit card point of sale system or multiple grade switching device and uses a mechanical roll-over gallon counting system.
