Default leaking fuel filter

Ok Im finally getting the feel for my truck. got the tanks workin rite made a cold air kit for it and got a sh*t ton better mpg out if it made a manual adjuster to control boost straight piped it about an hour ago. gettin here where im pretty happy but my fuel filter keeps leaking every few days ill come outside in the mornin and there will be a little puddle of fuel under it and the filter or the cap will be a touch loose. anybody else had this problem? i was told if i go buy the motorcraft filter this will stop?

I've had that happen once, oddly enough no fuel leaked out but it was letting plenty of air in. I just tightened it down a bit more and it hasn't happened since. You can get a wix filter that eliminates the bottom cap. It has the drain valve built into it and it has a port to put in your water sensor.
