    cracked fuel filters on triple 525s

    anyone else with triple 525s keep cracking the fuel filter on the center motor??? it looks like the problem is the way the filter is secured to the motor, leaving the fuel line wiggling around, causing metal fatigue. The one I just replaced lasted less than 4 (runnning) hours.

    We had the same thing happen to us. We left Naples Fl went north to Boca Grande and on the way back both smelled raw gas, opened engine hatch and had gas squirting all over the hot engines, on the new 07 the lines and filters are run different, Im sure they had lots of complaints.
