I always wondered if shaking the hose after the pump shuts off will coax a few more drops of gas out of the low point in the hose. Any opinions?

If I ever saw some guy doing that, I'd yell out "Hey Buddy it's a gas hose not your...."

Yes, I do, to stop from spilling it all over the side of the car.

Just a little bit, so I don't drip gas on my car or the ground.

I do. Mostly just get a few drops but I have been pleasantly surprised with a steady drizzle, netting a cup or more on more than one occasion.

not only do I shake the pump for a few more drops of gas, but I'm also guilty of topping off the tank!

Guilty! I do shake the nozzle to make sure the gas doesn't drip on my car.

I always shake the hose a couple times to make sure every drop comes out. Don't you? I hate stains on the front of my jeans.

That doesn't work that well, plus I'm not that cheap and desperate.

I do only to prevent dribbling when I take the hose out, there's not enough gas in a few drops to make a difference in your tank
