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?

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

I give the nozzle a little shake to ensure it doesn't drip on my car.

Yes. There's the possibility of that stuff vaporizing if you don't put it in your tank, otherwise.

"I tilt the nozzle but more to ensure that fuel doesn't spill on my feet."

ditto, but more that fuel won't spill down the side of the vehicle and eat away at the wax/clearcoat
