Check the plugs for fouling and replace. If it goes, easy fix. But you'll want to find out why it isn't burning fuel efficiently. Fuel draining is not a good sign though!
Also, if you are talking about the canister filter on the starboard side of the motor, that is a water separator filter. There should be a sensor that screws into the bottom, it may have cracked, and replacing the filter could fix your problem there!
There are a number of good folks out there that can get you taken care of.
