most of the filters have instructions printed right on them, for how much to turn past contact point
if the filter is leaking underneath at the bowl, it is leaking from either the drain port, or the water in fuel sensor port.
You can fix both these with new orings.
however, you can also get around the problem by purchasing the WIX filter with the built in bowl. That's what I did and it eliminates leaks. I used the one without the water in fuel sensor, as they don't come with a new sensor, you have to use your old oem one, and if that's what's leaky, it'll keep leaking
I do plan to fix my oem bowl at some point, but for now, the wix built in bowl filter works great
plus after 2 years, it's time to change yours anyway
