Pulling the fuel pump fuse while the engine is running will depressurize  the 
filter as much as possible. It'll still weep so do this on a cold  engine. 
I've never heard the pre-fill thing. I can't imagine it's needed or it  would 
have come up via Bentley or car lists I've belonged to over the  years.  Bob

What is  the typical way to replace the fuel filter? Specifically, what 
is the  procedure for depressurizing the fuel system so I don't spray 
gasoline all  over myself and the engine compartment?

I also heard that one should  pre-fill the filter with fuel before 
installing it to prevent the sudden  rush of gasoline from the pump 
destroying the filter element. True or  false?
