I'm noticing that when I park, the drain hose for the stock fuel filter onto the driveway. Is this normal? The drain cap on the fuel filter is tight.

Get a $1. O Ring and correct the problem. Or spend more and change the design. My opinion if it matters any would be the O ring. Retain the original system by repairing what is leaking. If I have a leaking engine I repair the leak. I mean that stock fuel filter has maintained itself leak proof for over 30 years. Fix the leak. Or NOT. That is my opinion. Yes there are 2 paths you can go by. But in the long run. It's much less expensive to maintance and retain the stock fuel filter. Others opinions may and will differ. But after over 24 years I still have/had stock filters on all my CUCV's. Fact being I removed a few spin on units and returned them back to the stock configuration. Do as you wish. Be Safe and Have a Happy Holiday.

I second the o-ring.

The spin-on filter takes up too much real estate for me.
Original design still works just fine.
The original fuel filters are plentiful and easy to replace.
