A week ago I posted a contest to give away my copy of the book 356 WAYS TO SAVE GAS. Patrick made the best comment and won the book
This is what Patrick said:
Not only do I strive to save gas, but I also strive to get more for my money. I'm shocked that people are so quick to put the nozzle back in the pump after filling, when there's usually a few drips left. If you're really thrifty, whenever you fill up, put all three nozzles from the pump in your tank for a few seconds...you'll usually get a little extra gas for no cost!
Yesterday, when I filled my tank I tried Patrick’s idea. After the pump shut off, I picked up the loop of hose that was hanging down to drain my gas, which was trapped in the hose, into my tank.
I then picked up the nozzle from the Mid-grade, 89 octane, pump and lifted the hose. I got a small amount of abandoned fuel to run into my tank.
I did the same with the Premium, 92 octane, nozzle and hose and got another little bit of free abandoned fuel into my tank.
I think that I got a little less than a half pint of free fuel. That is enough that I will be able to drive at least one mile using that free gas. If I did that for one visit to the gas station each week, it adds up to more than 50 free miles a year.
Thank you Patrick
