To discharge static electricity. And do you use the Gas pump nozzle holding device? I personally don't use the holding device even when filling to a full tank. When dispensing fuel I apply continual force to the nozzle lever for the time it takes to dispense the gasoline, which can be several minutes. By pumping this way this eliminates the risk of creating a static charge from rubbing your hands on your clothes.
