Ive booked my wife's IS250 in for a major service this weekend at a local garage. 

Looking on the garage website for what's included in the service, it states change fuel filter if fitted externally from the tank.

The wife's Lexus is a 2010 with 31k on the clock.

I would be interested to know if the fuel filter is fitted inside the tank or outside and at what age/milage does it require changing.

 It is in the fuel tank, on the fuel pump. Lexus/Toyota claims that the filter will last the life of the pump, which they claim should last the life of the vehicle.

Aaaahhhhh 220 you say?.... That'll be the DERV flavour then, totally different beast and yes a filter for the fuel Is available but you won't find a pattern fuel filter for the 250.
