yup, go slow and be careful and don't try and "blip it" towards the end to fill it up every little bit. First time i shut it off I don't start it again. Normally that "back splash" i see people get when they try and fill it up every little blip like people do when trying to get it to hit on the penny when filling up a car.

Haha I do the angle thing and don't get anything anywhere when I start... it's just that I do the "blip it" thing and try to fill it up a little higher and it splashes sometimes and a few drops splash out or onto the nozzle and then when I pull out the nozzle it drips... another Q... how many miles can you go on a full tank?

yeah pull the cover back and when it gets to the top put the tip in (
) and pull slighly so it clicks and lift the tip out and let the gas cum (
) out by itself...

I do what everybody stated above, and I also grab a napkin/towel from the gas station window washing units, and hold it around the end of the nozzle so it doesn't spray out while pumping or drop on the tank when I'm moving the nozzle to/from the tank's hole!! (man, that ALMOST sounds dirty
)
