These are where your a/c gets it's air through in your truck...What you breathe while traveling...

Assuming you only ever travel with the windows rolled up. The moment you roll the windows down you let all that stuff in to your vehicle anyway.

Assuming the truck even has them. Many vehicles no longer have them.

You are so right. My 2011 Silverado has no cabin filter and to make matters even more confusing it has not inline fuel filter anymore. Only the sock in the tank is used. With the price of clearing or replacing fuel injectors I totally do not understand taking the inline fuel filter away from t truck application.

Never owned a rig with a cab filter.

Would be worthless to me any way as I drive with one window open, even in the winter to keep the windows from fogging over.

I like having a filter. All that crap doesn't plug up the cores, and doesn't blow all that mess in my face...

Never had a problem with stuff flying in my face and don't believe I have ever had a vehicle with a cabin filter. But like many, I travel with the windows open, and carry along two large fur shedding dogs; so a filter does me squat.

It was explained to me that after the late 70s, fuel filters were generally not needed. I can remember having prior 80 model vehicles that had to have fuel filters replaced when they clogged. Since the 80s, I can not remember ever having a problem with a vehicle whether it had or didn't have an inline filter.

From what I was told, prior to the late 70s, in ground fuel tanks were metal, they rusted, causing holes, and dirt as well as rust was pumped through the service station fuel system into the vehicle. I can remember in those days, the fuel pumps had large filters on the hose, just before the nozzle; not there anymore.

Also, vehicle fuel tanks were metal, and could get some rust in them if a lot of condensation got into the tank.

But after the late 70s, the EPA required that ALL in ground fuel tanks be fiberglass; thus no rusting, no rusting through, etc. Fuel pumped into vehicle is clean. Also vehicles went to plastic tanks, plastic or SS lines thus stopping any in vehicle debris.

I have to say, I have never had to have my in-tank fuel pump pulled to have the sock filter at the pickup cleaned. And honestly, cannot think of anyone who has. I'm sure there are some out there, and I'm sure that there are some times that some debris could get into the lines.

But the biggest problem I have ever heard of is the incorrect dropping of a fuel load into an in-ground tank by a tanker. Couple years ago, when living in Moab, a Maverik fuel tanker dropped a load of diesel into a regular gas in-ground tank. Ironic part was that station; on the northside of Moab, did not sell diesel fuel.

So not saying no filter is good, just saying why I was told they are no longer used on the majority of vehicles (gas engines...can't speak for diesels). Information came from a few auto engineers I lived next to when living in SE MI.

My 2010 has two fuel filters and a water separator.....
