Filling Up Your Gas Tank Sitting up or Down

Do you sit on your bike while filling it up?

If you put it on your sidestand, it doesn't quite get as much of the good ole gas. I prefer standing holding my bike up between me, fueling, then riding away... whats the survey say?

When you hold your bike upright you can get more gas in it right? I always lean mine on the side stand to imitate a lean angle somewhat, If I filled it all the way to the tippity top while holding it upright, where does all that gas go when I lean the bike?

J/K, but I notice a huge difference in how easily I can throw the bike from one side to the other on the backroads when my tank is totally full and heavy as to when it is just half full.

the gas sloshes... and vents if you have filled it too much, but better yet, if you lean way over, and filled 3/4 way, still have the same issue, the gas is moving no matter what... i don't think it makes a difference, its a tank! Just don't fill it past the overflow line, or what every it is called... since it would vent then, and possible damage emissions? (right?) at least on CA bikes.... which are a bit different i think. I don't think theres any issue with filling it up full. i've not had any, and i've got 3k miles on this bike doing that?!

I sit it on the side stand until it's mostly full, then hold it up straight with my legs until it's topped off.

On the XR, I have to stand next to the bike to get a good view into the tank to see when it's almost full.

Most newer bike's tanks have a "neck" that will prevent you from filling it all the way to the top no matter how you are refilling it. I always get off the bike and do it, its just really uncomfortable with all the gear on to do it sitting, and I have to get up to do the card thing first anyway, so might as well...
