Dangerous Car Parts

So I replaced the fuel filter on my Honda yesterday. I used an ADL blueprint part - the same as I normally fit, since they are supposedly good quality. Although next time I need one, I will see what other options are around.

When I started the car to go to work this morning, I lifted the bonnet to check the new filter wasn't leaking. Without exaggerating, it was spraying petrol everywhere! Fortunately nothing caused the escaped fuel to ignite and I shut off the engine as fast as possible.
