"Lifetime" fuel filter on a 5.4
Just had a 30,000 mile service today at Ford. The usual.
I asked them about the fuel filter because it was supposed to be part of the service, but they said they did not do it.
They told me they could not get to it because it's an inline unit that's part of the sender, and since I have a TransferFlow tank, that's kind of a huge hassle.
I wasn't too concerned, but I did a little research, which included calling Brad at TransferFlow. He was very helpful, but even he did not know where the filter was. I finally looked in the service manual, which I have, and that's where it said it's inline. That's also where it said it's a "lifetime filter."
Why do I have problems believing any fuel filter is good for "life?" Does anybody with a gasser have any experience with "lifetime" filters? I'm not too concerned, just curious, and I can always use a good laugh.
