There is another fuel filter on the fuel pump going by what you said the filter looked like that bad the filter in the fuel tank with the fuel pump needs to be changed and possibly clean out gas tank.

Thank you and that's what a friend told me also... I'll probably just have to replace whole fuel pump system since I have to take the bed off and fuel gauge don't work but low gas light does
