    Changed the fuel filter. The golden shower was free.

    If you have a case of the crabs in your armpits, this procedure will take care of it.

    This was the least amount of fuel Iíve spilled doing this on an NB. Took a while to come down from huffing the fumes.

    On the NA, I clamped the hoses before removing, used the caps from the new filter to mitigate spillage.

    A little more forethought goes into the NB procedure.

    Never had them, but when you brake free the filter connectors, gas usually flows down your arm into you armpit.'m sure we can arrange the experience for you.

    I bought those scissor-like hose clamps specifically for the next time I’d have to do this.

    If you wiggle the right way the gas will go over your shoulder and into your eyes and mouth. A joy. Glad I only have to do that every couple years.

    Nothing worse than gas in your mouth.

    Re: What did you do with your Miata today?

    Forcepts? Yeah, I use those on NAs. The NBs seem to use a different hose, a little different material that doesn't seem to want to be clamped. For the NBs, I usually pull the filter out of the tiedown, remove the exit hose, cap the filter. If I reuse the QR clips I'll move the exit clip from the old filter, put it on the entry of the new one, cap the exit. When I remove the entry line of the old one, I drop it in an oil collection pan and immediately clip it the new one ASAP.

    NAs, I clamp off the fuel lines in and out with forcepts.
