You should chage them at least once a year if you have an old car, every other year for a new one, especially after the winter months. You pick up a lot of dirt and the car runs harder doing these months.

You might also need to change it when you are broken down along the road with no fuel getting through the gas line which is probably the answer you wanted.

No, dont change them when you are alongside the road....if you are alongside the road already you just count to 100 and drive on like nothing happened!!!!

You need to change them every every 2 to 4 years or 30,000 to 60,000 miles. This is straight from an automibile manual!!

You don't normally need to. The filter is a sponge on the fuel pump in the gas tank. if it is bad then you need to pull the fuel pump to change it.

You will need to remove the gas tank from your 2004 VW Passat in order to change the fuel filter. Remove the gas line. Remove the fuel filter retaining plate. Reverse the process to install the new fuel filter.
