    I have a canister style filter on my car, actually a summit brand. Installed by prior owner.

    Car lost fuel pressure, only had about 2 psi. I took the canister off, removed the cartridge filter. The bottom plate of the cartridge remained behind. The glue holding the end cap on had dissolved. That same glue was covering the vanes in my fuel pump.

    I believe ethanol is not playing nice with the filter cartridge.

    I think I may take the filter off and install a different stainless or bronze style filter... no glue!

    Nice, and they're talking about upping the content. I know it wreaks havoc on fuel lines. I got to change mine out for some of the newer stuff.

    "We" like to blame the fuel, but this has been going on for, "how long" now? Isn't it time that the manufacturers have been making compatible materials?

    Having said this, anyone have any recommendations for a quality stock style fuel filter?

    I think they are on the fuel line stuff. At least I thought I read that somewhere.
