Do you dribble after you p.......

...... ertol or diesel your car ...as in fill it up.

Me i hate those sloppy types that yank out the nozzle with liquid still in it, only to see it running down the quarter panel of the car. Its not the "waste" factor that bugs me BUT the sheer sloppy/messy/lack of caring/lazy aspect if this act that drives me wild

... do thes epeople do the same in their private lives EG: how do these people brush their teeth or do they get up from the 'jacks' & not wipe their arses ... rant over

Back to the topic, are you like me or am i just fussy

I'm like you, good to be clean and fussy.

Tell me though, is your flow rate what bit used to be?

I've got a horizontal filler cap now on the Coupe so it's not a problem, but I certainly never dribbled before either. As any man knows, you just have to give it a good shake before putting it away.

You gots to shake it before you take it. Dribbling on the paint is a serious Neddy no-no.

Best to sit down if you dribble.

Personally I find a 360 degree twirl is the best way to get rid of drips

Mind you, it was a lot easier before they made these daft unleaded filler necks. There used to be plenty of room to waggle the nozzle about before.

No, not a single drop. Petrol is too expensive to waste it that way.

Re: Do you dribble after you p.......

Yea, did so! Got real worried like til I realised it was the tight gusset in 'me cheap Primark trousers was too high, restricting the flow. Remedy? Total hatch open job.
