My previous truck had a tether which eventually broke. The tether would also bind occassionally. I like the tap for it's simplicity.

Here in Jersey, it makes no difference. Can't pump your own gas, so it doesn't matter. :)
If I had to let someone else pump my gas, I think I'd prefer a tethered gas cap; they can't lose what's literally tied down. Since I use self-serve, no preference.

No Preference, but if others will drive my car, I prefer to have a tether and can be hung inside the gas door.;) :p

The cap tether on the Subaru is too short, and sometimes gets in the way of the pump handle. The one on my Exploder was too long, and would dangle and swing (and scratch) on the fender. I actually prefer the "hanger" thing.

Also the type that have the tether AND can be hung on a little tab on the gas door.
Such as the Pilot, or the 2005 Pilot at least.

Hehe...I have neither so the cap goes upside down with the handle in the "rain gutter" thing along the length of the roof.
Are you speaking of your 2005 Pilot having neither? That surprises me since mine has both. It is tethered AND has a little plastic tab that goes into a little slot in the gas cover door, as seen here:
