I picked up fuel filters for my 82 300TD the other day. The gal looked them up in her parts book and then gave me 3 filters, 2 canister and 1 inline. I can find 1 canister and 1 inline on the car. The 2nd canister is smaller than the first. Where does the 2nd canister filter go or did the gal screw up? I can't find it in the manual.

It might be the tank filter, it looks a bit like a small canister. Under normal conditions that doesn't need to be changed. If it is blocked, you can clean it.

The one on the bottom of the Fuel Tank is a Screen with a 1-13/16 (47mm) inch flat nut on the bottom.

The Fuel Tank Screen can be cleaned and reused but you need to change the O-ring (and drain all of the Fuel out of the Tank before you remove it).
