Hi hondsainsight.

Located an InsightCentral post that may be of help for your fuel strainer task. I noticed there are two fuel related filters (including the strainer filter) located inside the fuel pump. The kicker is the fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank. As you know, probably for last 20 years or so, most cars/truck fuel pumps are located in the fuel tank.

Once fuel pump is removed from fuel tank, does not appear to be a hard job to install new screen & fuel filters. For the fuel related filters many site can be goggled. Cannot recommend one way or the other (never bought from them), but ID CARID site was interesting.

Using InsightCentral SEARCH function, should be able to find under: 02insight
The post is dated 25 Jun 2010.

Hope this will help. Let me know how it goes. Got me interested in changing out my fuel filters.

A couple of things:

This is posted in the second generation forum (4 door hatchback Insights)
It may or may not be about them.

The other thing is, rather than ask about an obscure part, maybe tell us what the issue is you are having. You may only think the issue is fuel filter related. Or maybe you have very good reasons why the filter needs attention. In any case, on auto forums, always give as much information as possible. Including, but not limited to, the year, model, current miles, some maintenance history.

Usually, if a fuel pump, mounted in a fuel tank, needs cleaning, the whole tank needs cleaning as well. That is usually not dyi. Gasoline is dangerous and should only be worked with in a controlled environment. It does not burn. It explodes.

car is Gen 2 that is why the question is posted here.

There is no issue with the fuel system. According to the service booklet the fuel strainer to replace every 40,000KM. So I was thinking can I replace the fuel strainer myself since I done these changing engine oil, cvtf oil and just recently replaced the spark plugs by myself.

40,000 km = 24,854 miles.
Here in the US, we do not have any such recommendation. Perhaps in the country your Insight was sold the fuel quality is not so good? If that is the case, it may be that there is a fuel filter mounted in a more accessible place.

What country is that? How many km on your Insight now? What model year is it?

I did Google 2010 Honda Insight fuel strainer and found hits showing the mesh sock that is part of the tank mounted fuel pump. The only thing close is, on a list for U.K. Maintenance scheduling, a fuel filter replacement at three years but that was for a Diesel engines only. There also seems to be an inline filter for some Civics.

Russia - supplier of oil, but gasoline in the country is similar to cow urine plus additive.
Many owners replace fuel filter in 120k km, spark plugs in 90k km.

For replace filter in Service Manual:
begin 20-121 page, after 11-300 pages.

Replace filter on CRZ
Replace fuel filter of Civic
Maybe replace on Civic: 17048sna010
