Default Fuel Filter Info?

I've read some articles lately that say you should change your fuel filter every year or so but I looked in my manual and there'* no mention of a fuel filter at all! So, is this something that'* really necessary? Will it affect my car'* performance? How often do you guys change yours, if at all? And, since I couldn't find anything about it in the manual - where is it and how would I go about changing it? Thanks!

I changed mine at about 60-70K mi. The service manual says only when it gives problems...

I had one I didn't change till over 100K mi and I let it dry out tried blowing air through it. Took a lot more effort than the new one.

This should help you out some. It'* on the driver'* side, under the car, roughly about by the rear seat.
