Yeah. I find it very odd that pretty much since the mid-nineties cars haven't had a an in-like fuel filter. It cost under a buck and is not liable fail. And with 99.9% of fuel bring completely uncontaminated, very unlikely to ever need servicing.
So why not just fit one to save the car day in the very unlikely event that a gas station ends up pumping the last dirty drops in a tank? I don't get it.
There is a filter, but it's on the bottom of the fuel pump.
AKA: "Sock" filter. It prevents anything from gumming
up the pump. In the old days, pumps were mechanical,
and had a couple of fuel filters before the carb. Symptoms
of a sock filter that is gummed up would be the Jeep cutting
off when below a 1/4 tank of gas.
This came off my 99 XJ.
