As the title says, when i change my fuel filter, fuel leaks out from the 'out' side of the filter.
(all filters used are ryco ones)
This is the 2nd filter I've tried and this happens, luckily i am able to put the old filter back on and it doesn't leak fuel.
I don't think i have threaded the fuel lines.

Any ideas?

You sure you haven't tightened the nuts tight enough? Also make sure the fuel line is fully pushed in. The fuel line might not be all the way in causing bad seal.
