No person, firm, partnership, association or corporation, their agents and servants, shall store, expose or offer for sale, or sell, or aid or assist in the sale of, any liquid fuel, lubricating oil, or other similar products, so as to deceive, or tend to deceive any purchaser as to the nature, quality or identity thereof by false representation, or by substitution, mixing or adulteration, or by the use of false or fictitious names, or by the use of disguised, camouflaged or falsely labeled containers, tanks, pumps or other distributing equipment, or by imitating the design, symbol or trade name under which recognized brands of such products are generally marketed.
