Ah, I knew that how it was on the V8 but I was hoping it was external on the V6.

So the pump gets all clogged up? That would be a great idea

Stop me if I'm wrong but many cars have fuel filters outside of the gas tank (Ford, Mitsubishi, Chevrolet Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, Avalanche and GMC Sierra and Yukon). many car markers in recent years have begun putting them in the fuel tank but that is by no means the norm or the history.......idiot. Someone is car illiterate.

Maybe they thought it was a good idea to put it BEFORE the pump as it would get clogged by a bad fuel batch. Who's the most idiot btw? The arrogant/insultant one or the car illiterate? Think about it.
