    Not sure on the size, but when my fuel filter was changed the Jubilee clip was replaced with a wide cable tie.

    ive got 3 cable ties holding it on at the moment (surprising how good cable ties can be for automotive things) but thought best to get a metal one on there at some point.

    Very true, Cable ties are usefull for a lot of things.

    If you are going to change the fuel filter every couple of years I cant see using cable ties becoming a problem. Even if the cable tie was to fail the filer would not go anywhere or cause any damage.
    Seeing the amount of crap that was in my old filter I will deffo be changing the filter every 18 months.
