    Anyone have a link to DIY instructions for replacing the fuel filter in a 2018? Thanks.

    Not sure I would really mess with it 220k on my Tacoma and no filter change and I’m sure it’s had some questionable fuel. If you really want to the only info I could find referred to an in tank filter which would most likely require dropping the tank.

    I'm pretty sure all fuel filters are inside the tank now.

    I wouldn't F with it personally, on a 2018 bring it to the dealer. One tank of gas isn't going to do anything.

    Like others have said, the filter is in the tank now, gone are the days of an in-line filter.
