Hey was gonna change my fuel filter and heard different opinions about it. Is it easy and how much gas will spill out. Do you guys think it is worth doing yourself to save the money?

Yeah man, it's a 5 minute job. You just need a flathead screwdriver to open the little clips.

a lot of people have trouble with doing them. the clips are kind of a pain to get the first time, but once you figure it out its easy.

^ Indeed. You'll see. You have to pry one side up and hold it in place while you try to push the other side through....it'll make sense when you see it. Still, once you do it and see how it works, it's a 5 mintue job.

How much gas will leak out during the change?

about a cup of gas leaks out. now if your car has undercoating wear rubber gloves!!! gas will melt the rubber coating and then black stuff gets on your hand, gas then evaporates and your had is coated in rubber, takes a while to get off (days).
