Problems at the gasoline pump.

No one enjoys spending their hard earned paycheck on fuel. Especially now with the cost of gasoline on the rise and no end in site. With new car manufacturers on the rage about their new hybrids and how fuel efficient a new motor vehicle is. Has this caused you to think of ways to help extend the life of your current automobile? Are there cheaper ways to get farther on a tank of gas? There are many inexpensive ways to improve how far you can travel on a tank. I want to talk about one way that has me spending extra dough at the pump that I have tried to solve on my own for years now. Perhaps you can help me with ideas on this problem. Here is my issue: When you finish filling up at the pump, hear that click and pull the nozzle out of your car why does the gas always have to drip. I’ve lifted the hose, tilted the pump and done everything possible to keep that costly substance from spilling out onto my new paint job or watching my money go down the drain. A few drips every fill up times every driver worldwide is countless gallons. This has always bothered me and do you ever wonder how much of the fuel you paid for stays behind whether in the nozzle or the hose or perhaps it’s spilling onto your car or the ground.
