Honda recommends to change fuel filter every 40,000KM. It is because of the fact that it helps in keeping the fuel pump and the injectors free from any stress that is caused by debris in the fuel. We also recommend to replace in an event where vehicle is filled with poor / bad fuel. This can also cause fuel mixture lean error in Honda Hybrid vehicles
Honza Vezel fuel filter / strainer is placed between the front two seats. It is a very hard to reach area and requires a 10/10 skill level to open the center console along-with all electronics. Care is required so that nothing is damaged or scratched in the process. We at fixmycar.pk have trained resources that can do this job at your premises and keep your Vezel in a top condition.
The following is a pictorial on how to do this job.
