    Default FUEL FILTER DRIP?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a new member and have a quick question. I bought a "used" 2006 kubota L-4330 HSTC, 1,050 hrs., has one rear remote, HD Front bucket, etc. I just use this for snow bank stacking etc., that will be its only use. I noticed after the loader has been sitting for a few days, a "drip" the size of a penny, coming from the area of the fuel filter bowl. I have not taken the side cover off yet...I just purchased a new filter, and o-ring, that what i'm hoping for, maybe the "screw cap" is loose? Any suggestions? also try to answer the following as well
    1.)if i'm not going to use for days, etc. should i close the fuel valve lever?
    2.)or should i drive it a mile or so weekly, to keep things moving?
    3.)i have a battery tender on it at all times, my local Kubota dealer says, park it for the year, leave the tender on, and fuel stabilzer.
    4.)any other tips??

    great site!!
    thanks

    Philip
