When you change the filter should you fill the new filter with gas?

I have never filled mine up.

Put a large Ziplock bag around it when you lossen it up to catch some gas that might spill.

Are you asking if one should fill before installing it? If so, NO, just install it. After it's installed, just use the primer bulb to fill it.

Yeah thats basically what I was asking. I didn't fill it then tried pumping the bulb but it never seemed to fill. Maybe I just need to keep pumping.

00Keywest,

Prefilling is a matter of preference. Mine (3) are actully pretty deep in my bilge, so less risk of spillage.

You should have enough fuel left in your line/carbs for it to fire up, esp if fuel injected. It will then draw natural vacuum and fill it up pretty quickly once running.

Like mentioned above, I also date mine, and put next due (hours &/or date) on a bright sticker as a reminder that I place on the outside of the separator as well in my maintenance log.

Catch 'em up.
Evan.
