Good idea IF the fuel has been thru quality filters before you store it.

Many folks will simply use a few quarts of ATF , as it is clean from the can and might or might not be useful to the injection system.
Agreed, any fuel prefilled that can get to the "filtered" side isn't the best idea. In this case I didn't mean to prefill before filter replacement. If you put the new filter element into the housing first, then any new fuel added can flow only to the outside of the element which is the dirty side anyway.
