Fuel Filter Change - VIDEO

Changed the fuel filters this morning. Here's my experience. Might save a few of you guys from making the same mess I did...

Almost 15,000 miles. The filters weren't too bad. Could have gone another 5K miles. Kepr did his at the same mileage and had gel on the filter and algae in the bowl.

Very nice video Epic. I recently used your video for installing my Titan tank. I was curious if you had noticed the bolt head rubbing the side of the tank on the forward Titan mount? I'm a little worried that over time that bolt head might wear into, or even through the wall of the tank. Have you done anything about it?
Again, very nice video, I've watched a lot of your vids on youtube. Keep up the great work.

I wondered the exact same thing last summer and decided I'd install as per instructions (doing nothing) and then keep my eye on it. I just checked it this morning and there is no sign of wear or damage to the cross-linked polyethylene. I've had the tank on there for about 10k miles. Here's a pic:

Thanks Much Epic, great as always.
The service manual says there is a check valve in the FCM and if you unscrew it 3 full turns them drain the fuel the bowl shoudl be empty when you remove it. I have not tried it yet though.
See attached file.

Thanks again

Thanks Darren. This definitely answers the siphoning question. I'll get this info out on the other forums also.
