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 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

No, I only tilt the pump nozzle up so I don't drip gas on the side of my car before removing it from the tank.

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