FUEL FILTER REPLACEMENT

Does any of you knows the miles interval for replacing the fuel filter on a 1.5l, 2008 Advance?

There isn't a specified interval that I am aware of. The need to change it would really depend on the quality of fuel that you put in the tank. I have removed ones off Yaris with more than 100K miles and they were completely unrestricted.

Typical symptom is loss of power under load.

also possible loss of mpg or even if you don't feel like a loss of power, but a bogged down experience...tough to describe that one tho.

Confirmed on the Toyota Canada service site. No maintenance period. PITA to replace, as it's in gas tank, right?

its funny, because I just notice both problems in the car, low mpgs , and feels like under power, not to mention the problem starting the car in the morning, it feels like the engine slow to start, but it just when the car is cold, once the car has been running for a time, it will re-start fine, and its not an electrical problem.

I have replace the filter at aroung 90k kmts, I have 183k now, so it must be the time.
