    Any good tricks to prevent gas overfill?

    Does anyone have any good tricks to prevent gas overfill? When I fill up, it always seems to catch me by surprise and I fill up to the nozzle and sometimes spill a bit if I'm not quick. Then, when the weather warms, I've got gas burping out of the relief valve. Is there some smart trick to keep from over filling? I can't see the tank well enough or hear a change in pitch (may be just too loud around the gas stations).

    Thanks,
    Jim

    I can always Hear it when it Hits the Neck, or gets Close to it, then I just Look in, and Slowly go til it's Topped Off.

    I usually just ball-park the amount I need, then start listening as best I can, and you can hear it start to get full, then just go slow. Dont listen too close, I've gotten gas in my EAR before! Haha. POS system.
