I am trying to eliminate problems before this summers Colorado jeepin trip!
Also, does removing the gas tank filler cap take pressure off the line so the filter can be changed?
I don't ever remember seeing a 90 degree elbow on my fuel filter (it's a 95 too). I'm sure you can find something similar to what your looking at a local auto parts store, or even home depot. I Left my fuel cap on when I changed mine because I was afraid it would cause a syphon effect (kinda like putting your finger on the top of a straw submerged in water, then letting it go) The only fuel run off I had came from the filter its self.
