    1998 Toyota Tacoma has no recommendations / instructions on changing out the fuel filter. Ever. TL;DR - it never gets replaced during the lifetime of the vehicle. This is directly for the dealership's mouth. I am one of extremely few people in Chicago to have ever bought an OEM fuel filter. Autopsy on the old one revealed a huge amount of crud built up. Relocated its mounting location as well, from being attached to the engine block underneath the intake manifold, to a more sensible / accessible sport on the firewall.

    you have a sock filter because the pump is in the tank. if you have a mechanical pump on the engine, you can put the filter inline because youre still filtering prepump. walbro style gear pumps no likely your shitty fuel. plus putting it in the tank allows you to put the regulator and the return right in the tank. much more compact.

    The winter of 2009 / 2010 someone stole all our gas so my brother filled the tank with water hoping they would come back but it backfired on him because a family friend was helping him & running him around all day and he was about out of gas so he thought he would get a couple gallons off of us until later. He had already put some in the van before my brother could stop him so my brother got to drop the fuel tank on the van to get the water out. After that he was ready to get that water out of the big take before it happened again. :-):-)

    I bought the majority of a Honda CB-1 (NC27) 400 which the owner broke and sold as parts because he couldn’t get it started. He eventually just gave up. The problem was discovered when I pulled the fuel tap off the tank. The engine was in perfect condition. The electrics were fine. But water was getting into the tank and not finding its way down the overflow pipe because it was blocked with schmoo! That caused rust in the bottom of the tank. Then someone damaged the internal gauze tube thing, allowing the rust deposits into the carbs! An entire bike broken into bits because a hole was blocked, and one of the cheapest parts on the bike was mistreated and not replaced. The sadder fact is that I could have bought the bike whole for less two months before! These are the lessons we collect on our journey. Peace

    When I had to change my fuel pump on my old volvo, I used a pair of pliers backwards with the handle bits gripping the fuel sending unit cap, and a pair of vice grips pinching shut the biting bits of that said pliers. Then, a long screw driver between the plier handles to twist the damn thing. Worked fantastic.

    Every in tank pump has a sock like that. Even when there is an external filter. So it's not that they "put the filter in the tank where you can't get to it," it's "they eliminated the in line filter." Technically....easier to service.

    Gasoline vehicles can go hundreds of thousands of kms with just an in tank sock. I would be more concerned with water in the fuel than sediment or contaminants. Modern diesels are a different story, put anything other than good clean diesel in, be prepared to buy a fuel system. Have seen many people put DEF in the fuel tank. If anyone does this... own it and get it towed. Don't lie to the tech haha

    Most don't even have a filter. Just the sock on the end of the pickup tube. Designed to fail. They don't want us to fix anything. They want to sell us a new one. If we were smart, we'd examine things when we buy them and add filters and what not where needed to extend the life of things. But we buy something and assume that it's okay. Not finding out till something breaks that it was designed to fail.
