UnleashedBeast As others have stated, only use top tier gasoline and don't worry about it.

mp223 Can anyone confirm that we are able to access the fuel pump assembly by removing the rear seats and carpet?

jfsiutza most of the ford E series and F series already got this feature. the concept of the method is most gas stations have filtered gas. This being the case the Filter is supposed to last as long as the fuel pump. So when the fuel pump fails your due for a filter.

Yes. But on some older cars the pump in the tank is easily accessible by removing the back seats. I was wondering if it could be housed in there rather than the tank itself.

ducati20 A quick look in the Ford parts manual shows no filter at all, which is standard on all focus's post 2006 apparently... I would assume we have a screen on the pump assembly itself in the tank, everytime you turn off the car the flow would stop and the screen would likely clean off... Modern fuel is filtered at the pump so that's likely why all manufacturers are going to this system... I think the pump is accessible if you remove the rear seat... there should be a cover in there.

With cars isn't the pump/pickup assembly IN the tank? You have to understand with this car there are 2 pumps... on in the tank and one on the engine... the one on the engine is an extremely high pressure pump to atomize the fuel due to direct injection.

Borski So it's built into the tank... or the fuel pump assembly? Because if the assembly is accessible through the back seat that's not to terrible. Tank is another story because I definitely don't have the resources to drop the tank off.

They could have also done it to reduce part counts, lower part counts usually means lower manufacturing costs.

I vote this^... or maybe simply to discourage the home mechanic from performing basic routine maintenance. If they build it into the pump pickup assembly, fewer people are going to want to deal with draining and dropping the tank and therefor pay the $75/hr labor charge and the outrageous price that the dealership will charge for a filter through them....or maybe it is just a cleanable screen filter like motorcycles have had on them for years.
