Default replaced the fuel filter and all seems well

Hey Everyone,

I got around to changing the dreaded fuel filter today, the one that was on my car was dirty, might just be where its mounted at however! The side that takes the fuel from the tank the fitting on it was bent where it went into the fuel filter also (is this a common issue that happens to them when installing or what?) The car was almost out of fuel (despite what the fuel gauge said) I added 7.5 gallons to her and she seems to be doing 100% better now, guess I will find out over the next few days as to if that was the whole issue (sure hope so)

Thanks for all the help again

Donnie H.
