They are there to siphon off small amounts of gas and return it to the tank. This allows station owners to get around the Agriculture guys and their pesky testing. And why is the Agriculture department checking gas anyway? You guys want to check gas do something about those stinking cows standing next to the road in the rain. Did you know fly's can still fly in the rain? They can.
We hit $3.00 regular in the region this week.
402 miles in the rain in cow country today.
I'll never drink milk again or fill my bike on the side stand.

Maura's fun obscure trivia of the week:

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) the organization that sets the fire safety standards for everything from fire hoses to writing building codes, publishes the bible of fire safety for professionals, 'The NFPA FIRE PROTECTION HANDBOOK' http://www.amazon.com/Fire-Protectio.../dp/0877654743

In this book they specifically address those wretched nozzles, and they make a note that these nozzles present a potential serious hazard when used by motorcyclists, and as such are 'not a good thing'. I can't quote directly because my copy is at the office.

Hey - a reason to deny motorcyclists the ability to fuel their own bikes!!! It takes a "professional" to deal with this high tech equipment.

Usually side stand--occassionally CS and sometimes sitting on bike--but I do agree sitting on bike is risky--I intend to try test mentioned to see if CS allows much more than SS.

This may have already been mentioned. If it has been, I apologize. I'm not going to read all of those posts to find out. If you consume all of the gasoline in the upper tank and some in the lower tank, when you fill up on the center stand and then rock the bike back so the rear tyre is touching the ground, you'll hear the air bubble in the top of the lower tank be displaced by gasoline and go to the top of the upper tank. This ensures the lower tank is completely full. Of course, you have to be in a quiet setting to hear it happen. My 2 cents.

In fact, sitting on the bike is irritating and very painful, as well as sitting all day long. Be careful, because it can be harmful for your body as a whole: http://skywritingservice.com/blog/wh...armful-for-you
