I was told by AutoBarn I needed 2 fuel filters? So I brought both. He said 1 is a inline filter located near the wheel of the car 2006 Mazda 3 maxxX sport 2.0l and the other 1 is a in tank filter? Located in the tank (big job) Is this true ? Is there 2 fuel filters or was he stooge'n me haha from every where I've read it's only got a inline filter.

The "filter" in the tank is really just a screen and should last the life of the car unless you got gas from a mud-puddle.

Said another way, jut replace the inline filter and call it a day.
