My old Mitsubishi Mirage (91') had it under the hood and was easy to get to. Went to change our Honda Oddy's and go to look under the hood only to find it not there. No biggie then went on to find it's none serviceable and is in the gas tank itself.

I don't like how manufacturers are going to non-serviceable items like the tranny fluid and fuel filters now a days. Chevy's new 6 speed auto has no drain hole or fill hole. It's got what they call lifetime fluid, or what I would call, last till the warranty goes out fluid. Surely some of us remember fords lifetime air filters they put on the early duratecs. Remember how well that went lol
