Does this mean that the fuel filter never has to be changed or is it a big ticket item if and when it fails? Also, with todays fuel how long will the Honda fuel filter last mileage wise?

The filter is connected to the pump inside the tank. Usually if your not getting fuel it's not going to be the filter. Also, with the prices of fuel pumps these days if your going to take the time to drop the tank and swap the filter just do the pump also, comes with a new filter anyways. As for mileage, it's really up to your driving and maintenance. I've seen 100k+ Hondas on the OE filter.
I have the same problem. 2007 Odyssey fires with starting fluid. Turns over great. Installed new fuel pump and filter combination. When the ignition key turns on the pump can be heard pressurizing the fuel line and when bled it spurts quite a bit of pressure. Why can't the gas flow go into the carburator to start the vehicle? If an inline fuel filter does not exist what else can inhibit gas flow?
