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?

I empty the hose to keep drops of fuel from dripping on the paint as the nozzle is removed

No, just wait for gas to drain so it doesn't spill on the side of the car

yes I do - for both reasons - thinking I might get few more last drops and also not to spill any drops outside.

I don't shake the hose, but I will give the nozzle a small shake/tap to get the last few drops.

If you stop the pump and then squeeze the handle and shake the hose you can get a little more gas. However you are stealing gas that you did not pay for and shorting the next guy to use that pump. And who do you think hears about it from the guy getting shorted? That is right the poor attendant behind the checkout. Stop it, it just plain rude.

No reason to. Most of the pumps out there are set up to allow only a few drops after shutting off.
