I purchased a fuel filter from napa for my 2007 Toyota

Customer Question

I purchased a fuel filter from napa for my 2007 Toyota corolla but it doesn't look the same, I think they may have ordered the wrong one
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: uses more fuel for sure and turns over a few times before starting, just trying to do a tune up it has never had a tune up at 163000 kms
JA: Are you fixing your Corolla yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: boyfriend is doing it and we have done everything else associated with a tune up just have to do the fuel filtre
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no that is all

On this year Corolla it does not have an inline fuel filter. It only has a screen for s filter located in the gas tank but is rarely needed unles you got some real dirty gas at a station.

So, as far as replacing it along with the tune-up, it is not needed.

Any further questions just reply.
