One alternative that will give you long term reliability is to install a bypass valve and a pump that will recirculate your fuel through the filter while the motor is not in use. Just leave it running for a few hours and check the filter if it needs replacement. That's cheaper than removing a tank and will get you out of trouble if you ever get contaminated fuel.
