The method used, to see how your fuel filter is performing, is the same one, used to test how well, the oil filter is performing. Have a new filter on hand, because the test destroys it. After removing the filter, carefully cut or slice it in half. Usually the contents are reddish brown in color, that being the rust in the fuel system,(normal) that the filter traps. If the filter is not giving you any life, and you find this, each time you test the filter, chances are, it's gas tank time.

What will rice crispy treats will do in a cars gas tank?

If any of it gets through the pick-up filter (aka the sock) then gets through the fuel pump (assuming the vehicle is fuel injected) it will get caught in the fuel filter before it reaches the fuel injectors. If enough of it gets into the fuel filter it will clog up the filter and restrict the fuel flow.
