What should I know about changing the fuel filter on my fuel injected 1.8 that would be different from changing the filter on a engine with a carburetor. Is the gas going to spray all over when I remove the lines ??

Do it after the car has sat overnight, and most of the pressure should be bled off. You can also put a rag around the fuel hose when removing it to keep the fuel contained.

or if you really want to make sure pressure isn't there.first i'd undo gas cap,then pull back the carpet in the rear and open one side of the gas tank(under access panel)

Another trick is idle the car, pull the fuse on the fuel pump, then let the car die. This will pull most the gas out the fuel lines so you can change it.
