One of these days I should try this "vertical" trick. I have seen it mentioned on here off/on for a couple of years now but never tried it. Every nozzle I have used on this car has only gone in maybe 2" and always looks strange with the bulk of it hanging outside the car while pumping. But so long as I have a pump that is working correctly and ever since I quit going to Shell stations I do not recall getting a single massive pump spillage.
