I was checking on my manual and says to replace the fuel tank filter. I went through the shop manula and found the diagram with the fulter, but there's no indication of its location at least in the fuel delivery chapter.

Has anyone replaced/found this?

This doesn't show the filter but is shows the location of the canister and the CCV.

I was at the dealer today, and asked them about the fuel tank air filter. First of all they said it was the fuel filter, I said no, and showed them in their own maintenance manual to change it every 2 months.
We checked in the parts schematics, and found it near the top of the fuel door, It would apparently be to collect fuel vapours?
Thought it was interesting that most of the newer Hyundais show it, but my dealer has never replaced oneImageImage

So I guess the small thing attached to the CCV. I don't even know why that has to be replaced before the air filter...Image

From the picture I saw at the dealer, it looks like it fits in the filler neck, near the gas/fuel cap.
In your picture it looks like it is near the frame.ImageImage

Are you sure the pic you saw was for the Tucson? I know the filter for the Sonata is up by the filler neck:

2006-up Sonata (NF):

As you can see in both pictures, the fuel tank air filter is always attached to the canister close valve. In the Sonata, both are near the filler neck but on the Tucson, both are under the vehicle near the charcoal/evap canister. My guess is the Sonata places both up high for better ventilation while the much higher Tucson has enough ground clearance to allow the filter to get frash air while being closer to the canister.

Damned if I knowImageThe parts guy was the one who pulled up the picture, so I am pretty sure it was the Tucson. Not quite the same picture as yours tho NR.
Most of the newer models of Hyundai all called for the same air filter replacement every 2 years.

Here are some views of the Tucson tank. There appears to be something that looks like a filter near the filler tube but nothing is listed as a tank filter.

NR, The piece on the pipe near the filler cap is what the guy showed me at the dealer. From what I remember it looked like it would be held on by 4 screws/bolts. I will have to have a peek and see if I can see anything on my Tuc.

On another forum for Hyundais, I found this article about a fuel tank air filter, they said it was in the left rear quarter panel.There was a lot of confusion as to whether it was a fuel filter, which is located in the fuel tank with the fuel pump. This picture is what they gave the guy as the thing they replaced.
It look like a carbon canister to me, whatdo you think?
Don

According to my service manual the fuel tank air filter replacement is a requirement at 30K. I just had my 30K maintenance done and the charge for the part and labor was $167. This isn't cheap but it is a warranty issue.


This is a picture of the Fuel Tank Air Filter - they gave it to me in a plastic bag when I picked up the car.

from a santa fe discussion at http://www.hyundai-forums.com/index.php ... ntry281960, it seems like the "fuel tank air filter" is something we can do without. i might skip it too. just change the "fuel filter" when it reaches 60,000km.
