No, I put a plastic oil pan under the filter, loosened the clamps and pulled off the OUT line (To engine) first. I had a few drops come out. The line wasn't under any pressure.
On the IN side from the fuel tank, I was expecting a steady flow but only got a few drops, but I also held my finger over the line and swapped filters quickly. Keep a pan nearby to put the old filter in because about 1/2-1 pint of gas is inside the filter.
I changed the filter in the AM after the car sat overnight so if there was any pressure in the fuel line it had decreased from setting 12 hours (?).
Hmm.... My car is a 97 and there's always notices to depressurize the fuel system before doing anything else when changing the fuel filter.... I thought those things always stay pressurized.... :dunno:
