fuel line question

I'm wondering if I'm the only one who has a few drops of gas that drip out of my fuel line when I remove it from the outboard at the end of the day. Does anyone know a way to avoid this from happening. Its not alot of gas but I'd prefer not to have any gas leak into the water.

I use a fuel diaper when disconnecting to catch the fuel that always drips out. I haven't seen anything new that prevents this from happening.

I use a paper towel while disconnecting my 9.9 Merc. It barely makes a mark, 2 - 3 drops, but I don't want it on my boat.
