Default Honda Accords newer than '93 -- Lifetime fuel filters ?? -- really ??

I have a '95 Honda Accord 4dr LX 2.2

My service guy told me Accords newer than 1993 have 'lifetime' fuel filters.

I have 110k miles and was thinking about replacing it anyway...

Should I ?

Thanks,

I advise you to replace it anyway. I saw a post a couple of months ago
from a person that got a tank of gas that had some water mixed in with the
gasoline. He could not figure out why he was having the many problems that
can develop as a result of having water in the gas. One intelligent poster
suggested that he change the fuel filter since it might have water in it.
The person changed his fuel filter and the problem was solved.

You should read a little before you post. The Honda Odyssey has the fuel
filter in the tank and never gets replaced unless fuel pressure drops. Fuel
today is much cleaner and I haven't seen a blocked filter in years. My
opinion on why many manufacturers still need the filter replaced is because
the cheap material they make them out of deteriorates....

Ok smart ass.

There may be very long lived fuel filters, but nothing last forever. One
bad load of gas at a contaminated gas station can plug up the best of
filters.

You should live a little before you post.
