Do anyone of you know if I asbsolutly have to bleed my gas line in order to replace my gas filter ?
my battery is kinda low and if I bleed the gasline, I'm pretty sure I wont have enough juice to crank the starter as many time as I will need in order pump back gas all the way to the injectors...

No need to bleed yor gas line. Just catch some of the gas from the old filter in a cup and when you're ready to restart the car, pour a little gas down the carby's throat 1st and it should fire right up.

My car is fuel injected, does that change anything?

Since it's throttle body injected, it's basic out-lay is that of a carburetor...

I think that dropping gas down the TB will probably flood the engine but I'm not sure.

It won't because I just recently did it (2 days ago) to a 1990 B12 and fired it right up.

When I changed my fuel filter I never disconnected the fuse or anything like that, just took off the hose with my finger clamping it shut and I never dripped a drop of gas and then I had someone else bolt in the new filter and all done!
