I'm sure there is a better reason than that. Maybe to sell more fuel injection cleaning services at the dealers? lol
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.
