At the lake today in my 06' X1 with RTP... ran good then motor starts bogging out... seems like it is getting no fuel... starts then will sputter out... do you think my fuel filter finally bit the dust? Never had this problem before. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Filter no, fuel pump maybe. Check your fuel pressure at the fuel rail then go read the fuel pump threads. Mine started having problems running just before it went out.

This assumes of course that you've already ruled out bad gas.

pretty much sounds like the pump may be going out.

A spot check of the fuel filter wouldn't hurt.
Simply tap the intake end of it straight down on a paper plate, and watch for any debris.
If only clean fuel, now you know it's good to go.
