That's not true, generation 4 prelude (93-96) have fuel filter on the backwall, roughly across from the steering wheel. Generation 5 (97-01) have fuel filter under brake fluid reservoir, they are hard to get to and require crow foot tool to take old filter off. Even though Honda claims they are "lifetime" filters, I'd say it's a good idea to change it around 100k.

AnswerThe fuel filter is always located in one of two places. It is either located in the fuel tank, or somewhere between the engine and fuel tank. Get down under the car and follow the fuel lines from the tank forward, you will find it. If you don't see it, then it is in the tank. Answernot positive but i believe its near the firewall in the engine bay. id have to double check tho.
