i am quite concerned about fuel filter service requirements.i'm aware it is in the tank,but is it self cleaning and should it be changed before fuel pump failure

When the pump fails that is when you replace it. The Pump comes as a complete module. I think it is a poor design, but it is a cost cutting issue. Most cars use a 'return less' fuel system, so there is only 1 fuel line and no allowance for a fuel filter, which means more frequent fuel pump failure, not such a great plan in my opinion.
I figured ,that would probably be the answer.Sounds right ,still concerns me.Typical of how poor engineering designs underminded our american industries
