My theory is that repeatedly milking the handle to get as much gas as possible in the tank runs the pump meter more than the actual amount of gas that goes into the tank. Do you squeeze in every last drop or quit when the auto shutoff quits?

Today I asked the Swifty attendant to fill it up but not to top off the tank. He asked me again later to confirm I wanted a fill and I said yes but don't top it off after the automatic shutoff. So then I look back in the rearview mirror and he's topping it off. I asked him a third time to please don't top it off and he says, "I'm not, I'm just rounding it up to $38.00." After I'd already paid with a credit card so there was no point in rounding it off. Now I'm boycotting Swifty. It's not worth the aggravation to save a penny a gallon.
