Been down on the big chains for a long time.  Unless it's a brand, trusted name, I stay away

Thanks for all the kind words guys. I guess all that firefighting training in the Navy came to some good at home. I do now have a fire extinguisher, and Autozone did reimburse me for the cost of the parts I had to replace. They're also sending the deffective fuel filter to their main HQ, and took the remaining plastic Duralast (*snicker*) fuel filters off the shelf for the time being. Below are the couple of pictures I snapped of the aftermath:
 


Here is the filter still in the car.

Well, theres the problem...
 
And pics from the Car show that I had her in on Sunday:

I had a similar problem once with a plastic fuel filter, it somehow couldnt handle underhood temperatures.
For this reason, I only use metal filters on cars fitted with a gasoline-system. If possible at all, I get rid of the whole gasoline-crap as these are much more susceptible to fire hazard than other car fuels (and also other sorts of problems). But probably there's not enough LPG/propane-refueling points on your to justify a conversion, and a diesel.... sounds so agricultural :)
