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?

Yes, to eliminate spilling gas down the side of the car.

No, shut the pump off then squeeze the nozzle and remove from the car.

I do but that isn't the reason, the reason I do it is because I want to make sure the nozzle is done dripping before I put it back.
