Next time, make certain to have more than 1/2 tank of fuel, and the rear end a tad higher than the front. Then pre-fill the main filter and the prefilter cavity.
Where did you plumb in your inline filter? Did you cut one of the lines leading from the cannister filter back down to the IP's SOV?
Might want to run some Biocide to clean the tank.....
