help Priority A Preventive Maintenance

This will be the fuel filter and fuel bowl. If you can get your hands on a Baldwin PF7977, install one. It's 5 micron, yes a tad short of 2, but it's better than the stock filter (10 mic) or a FLEETGUARD FS19856 (7 mic), or the Wix 33585XE (7 mic). Change it every 3,000 miles, not every 5K or 10K. This will make darn sure it's not so full of crap, it escapes past it, sandblasting the injectors. On top of the filter, draining the filter bowl 15 minutes AFTER every fill up will keep water from accumulating and being sent through the injectors.

Alligator performance has an adapter where you can use a CAT screw on filter that's 2 microns and the filters are only 20$

Is it really necessary to drain the filter bowl every fill up?
