Quite often the gas slowly drains back through the pump into the tank. Not a problem most times. Thats why I don't like glass or plastic filters, I don't like seeing the filter only 1/4 full all the time! even though it always runs fine. LOL

Same here Jmark, I do not like any glass, plastic, or rubber on the pressure side of the pump.

There was a recall on the small tubular glass filters a few years ago due to leakage. I use the Wix 33003 (for 3/8" lines) clear plastic filter just before the carb. I like being able to see the crap that builds up, plus I had a metal one (AC GF-61P) that rusted through at the bottom & sprayed gas everywhere.
