    Fuel Filter
    The fuel filter is contained in the fuel sender assembly inside the fuel tank. the paper filter element of the fuel filter traps particles in the fuel that may damage the fuel injection system. The fuel filter housing is made to withstand maximum fuel system pressure, exposure to fuel additives, and changes in temperature. There is no service interval for fuel filter replacement.
    that's not the fuel filter. the fuel filter is located in line outside of the tank. you are referring to the pre-filter pump sac which should be replaced when you install a new pump and does not require changing at any other time.

    I have an ACdelco and FRAM fuel filters. Which one do you guys think I should use? I'm thinking ACdelco.... I hear FRAM sucks.

    (>_<) <--- (Has overlooked this) Wow...I completely forgot to change mine and it has been a year. I guess this is an ASAP thing to do...even though I have to say after taking my car from DC to Colombus OH and back I only had to stop for gas 1 time (450 miles one way) I guess I will be able to get more efficiency out of this.

    You should check the facts before talking through your ass.
    I am a GM Tech. at a GMC dealer. There is no frame mounted, inline fuel filter. They stopped using them on the trucks in 2004. The information I posted was copied from "GM Service Information", When I looked-up fuel filter replacement.

    I just went to a local shop to get mine swapped out. They told me it would cost about 50-60 bucks if I supplied the filter. I told them I'd do it myself. haha

    50-60 dollars? screw that, i changed mine today and i'd say it was easier than changing my oil, which i also did. It took me about 20 minutes to do.


    I also thought it would be cool to take a hacksaw to my old one and see what the inside looked like. I think mines stock, so its been on 100k miles, anyway, saw slipped and took off a knuckle, that didnt feel good
