I've seen several fuel filters in cars and motorcycles, and it's practically impossible that you'd ever clog one. The worst that could happen is that you might have a bit less usable fuel, but that's it. The filter is a long strainer, and the most I've seen being dirty is a few millimeters at the bottom. And I bet that's mostly from assembly crap. Don't know why people think there's a ton of stuff in gas tanks; there're several independent tests debunking that old wives' tale. Maybe in crappy stations, but if you fuel up in major gas stations, a dirty fuel filter is one of the few things I wouldn't worry about . And I'm a maintenance freak . Good day folks.
