Does anyone have a sure fire way of preventing dripping when removing the fuel pump from your gas tank? I wait, shake it, wait until there's no drip, try to hold it upright... and yet there are STILL instances (like yesterday) where it drips on my tank. Damn!

You'd think as an older man I'd be better at this.

Is this a joke? Put your free hand(with glove, you do wear gloves right?) next to tank opening palm up pull out pump slowly pulling away and bringing upright with your hand with glove on underneath the pump in case of dripping. Simple science !

I have never had that problem. First off, I usually hold the pump handle with a paper towel to keep any gas smell on it from getting on my hands. Then when finished pumping, a couple of taps of the nozzle on the fill hole and immediately turn the nozzle upside down. Never any drips anywhere. Don't put my gloves under the nozzle to keep any gas from smelling them up.

I always use a paper towel from the windshield washer station. Same procedure as CC noted.
