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?

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 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.
