Ford just uses the non-seviceable filter inside of the fuel tank now.... It saves them three-fiddy in parts and labor during manufacturing.

It does it's just non serviceable. There would be no need to change it anyways.

And your 2011 has one so stop saying you don't have one. You do not need to service your current one as car manufacturers are making things significantly better these days.

Lol my 01 Honda I had had a "non serviceable" filter in it. In 2018 the tank rusted out at the seam and I sold the car for parts to my father in law before we moved. That car never had a filter issue in almost 20 years of life and damn near 200k miles. Fuel filters these days are good for longer than you will likely have the car. Don't stress over it.

I hear you but they really just don't need it. Same as the 3000k oil change. Completely a waste of money nowadays to do it that often.
