Reminds me of the story I read on this website (I think??) some time ago about the guy who kept his engine room warm in winter with regular filament light bulbs. One day he backed into one of them, broke it and electrocuted himself!! Nobody wants a few (hundred?) gallons of diesel in the bilge - especially the USCG, EPA etc. Use the right materials and close the valves top and bottom. The risk of doing less could be very very costly!!

This is just the question someone with a CAV Euro style filter with a glass section should ask themselves.

The glass can be overtightened , and may not brake for months, then SURPRISE!
