Take a 1/2 wrench to the fuel filter lid and turn it counter clock ways. Pull out old filter. Put fuel on o'ring at bottom of filter and push it on slowly and put fuel on the gasket and qt 12lb I think.

Just make sure you get the bevel on the outer O ring pointing inward, and just snug up the lid, to tight and it will distort the cap and you will have a gusher. I change mine with only Wix filters every third oil change. The above directions will walk you through it.
