According to Honda, the fuel filter NEVER needs to be replaced. But, Id still change it out. Im at 126k miles, and havent changed mine yet. Its on my "to-do" list.

technically it should not need changing unless your fuel pressure is below spec. and its a pain to get at it inside the fuel tank.

It's not that expensive to change. I changed mine twice since I had my car. Peace of mind I guess.
