I feel like on my past older 90's vehicles, a fuel filter replacement was every 15-30K miles or every year or two.... and now today? I did not even know the Forte had a in tank fuel filter.... Should I replace it?

I can buy a new genuine fuel filter for about 33 dollars, and to install it via removing the rear seat cushion, and accessing the fuel filter from the service port on top of the tank and pulling the fuel pump..

Car has over 130K miles plus 9 years of use. Change it out? I don't have any issues, this would be piece of mind replacement to hopefully save fuel pump long term.

Most modern cars have all plastic tanks, and most gas stations these days have plastic tanks and good filters on the pump, fuel filter service isn't really necessary anymore and the filter (most only use a sock these days) will last the entire service life of the pump.
