I have to say that it is highly irresponsible (and downright dangerous) to show a video of a fuel filter being installed from the high pressure side of the fuel pump inside an engine bay. It should be relocated next to the petrol tank instead (fitting it near the gearbox is not ideal either).
The video also mentions about using two fuel filters. This is simply not necessary !! Out of all vehicles I have worked on (regardless of manufacturer) the dirt/sediment/rust in the fuel have nearly always turned out to be a rusty fuel tank. This applied to my 1300, my fiancée's Bedford CF2 horsebox, my type 2 T3 campervan and my mk1 Polo.
Anyway, my most important point is that fuel filter should never be installed inside an engine bay under any circumstances !!

I was told its dangerous to have a fuel filter in engine bay, especially between pump and carb as it may rupture under pressure causing fire. My filter is under the car near the gearbox. Is this true??
