The fuel filter is located in the fuel tank. It is the part of the fuel pump and fuel gauge I believe.

I think this is a life time part. Most newer cars have fuel filters that do not need to be replaced.

True that the fuel filter on the Accords is a "lifetime" part. Just depends on how you define lifetime...for instance, some gaming/video cards for computers come with a "lifetime" warranty that defines lifetime as when the card is still working. When the card dies, the warranty is void...which kind of defeats the whole purpose.

FredSVT said in his experience, the fuel filter gets clogged and then the fuel pump burns up, in which case you replace both and then a new "lifetime" starts. This isn't a yearly maintenance thing but if the car has 200K I'd probably be looking to change a fuel filter...

True, Honda just puts it down as a lifetime part to make it look more maintainance free. I have seen "lifetime" fuel filters get clogged at 100k in other cars but I still wouldnt worry about it until you really get high mileage then I would just check on it.
