praying to the gas pumps is exactly what the government gods would have you do
i'll do alot to improve my mileage...
but i wont f'ing change my way just to see how bad we have it in the end...
sometimes you guys are just nuts !!!
I think that what this is talking about is essentially making sure that any gas that is between the pump and the nozzle, is put into your tank. Essentially you turn the handle so that the hose is coming out the top and then you hold the hose so that the hose has a downhill run to the pump.
I don't know how much gas you get, but you do get a little bit. My brother used to fill his motorcycle with gas from the hoses, when he worked at a station and he could always get enough gas to go a few miles more.
I think you get a little, but hey it's going in your tank or it's going in the next guy's. Your choice?
Yes, possibly a slight difference. But the pump calibration would have a greater effect. Pumps are calibrated to +/- 0.5%. Choose the pump that registers 99.5% of the fuel rather than the pump that registers 100.5%. Hmmm. That might be difficult to do since the test results are not actually posted on the pump.
I would be willing to bet that since the calibration can be checked by the actual stations that they are all calibrated to 100.1% to 100.45%. Seems that they give you the rip everywhere else I am sure that they are not too keen on "giving away" a full 1% on every tank.
Hey here's a good one for ya - I gassed up tonight and when the tank was full I was looking for the overflow - instead I heard a sucking sound - the damn nozzle was sucking up the overflow back into the station pump - RIGHT OUT OF MY TANK!
