Bowser is an old fashioned name used before gas pumps came into more modern parlance.
Early gas pumps - the type that had the tall glass tube graduated in Gallons that was filled to the required amount using a hand pump and was then discharged into a vehicles gas tank. Well that was invented by an American dude and his last name was, Bowser. So the pump became known as the Bowser.

My uncle used to call Gas aka, Petrol, Benzine, a onetime ingredient of the fuel we use to power our cars and trucks,

Geography and time periods mean different names for what is actually the same stuff.
