    The fuel filtre is part of the fuel pump module located on top of the gas tank. It is in Haynes Repair Manual p 4-3, just not listed in the index. [​IMG]

    Modern fuel filters are designed to last for hundreds of thousands of miles. Many hundreds of thousands.

    I have it on my list of things to check at 500,000 miles, and I'll replace it even if it's not clogged at 1,000,000 miles.

    Unless you pumped mud into your gas tank, it's just not going to need to be replaced, ever, on almost any vehicle.

    Thanks JKD, I'll probably change mine at a million as well but it will probably kilometres. I checked with Toyota and they want $700.0 for the fuel pump/filtre module, so much for the idea of carrying a spare.
    Peter, it gives me great pleasure to spell filtre!
