No matter what you do, it is nearly impossible to stop those last few drops of gasoline from falling out of the nozzle after filling up. But designers at Dram Innovations in Canada created the Fuel Nozzle Drip Retainer to eliminate the excess fuel drops, save gasoline and help the environment. The device works like the mesh aerator on a kitchen faucet. It uses "surface tension and pressure differential properties" to form a vacuum in the nozzle, stopping drips. Dram is looking for companies to buy the technology and make the drip retainer.
