Pull the top off and look inside, often you get a super surprise inside. You'll know if you have it when you get inside.

They can look pretty good on the outside and be absolutely horrible inside.

Really should change it anyway now that you are that far. Flex the filter sock a bit, if sitting in phase separated fuel they often crumble into bits.

Your label has a production date in '02. That old can work fine but fail in the next second, the magnets in pump come loose to grind up in the armature, the ethanol has eaten the epoxy that held them in place.
