    We've owned a 2005 Elantra for just about a year. One of the
    inspections is to inspect the "fuel tank air filter", they also show a
    fuel filter which has to be inspected at 30k miles. I'm at about 15k
    miles but I've looked on the Hyundai tech site and cannot find a
    reference to a "fuel tank air filter".

    It is listed on the Maintanance log which comes with the vehicle, which
    I use.

    Does anyone know what and where this is?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    I order filters from a Hyundai dealer in Mass. I tried to order fuel air
    filter and they didn't send one. they said that the dealer has to drop the
    fuel tank to replace it....sweet isn't it??

    Either this is a typo or they're referring to the air filter for the
    charcoal canister.

  4. The FUEL filter is in the tank, attached to the fuel pump, but the tank
    doesn't need to be dropped to replace it. You access it through the
    floor under the back seat.

    AFAIK, there is no air filter in the tank.
