Default The Truth About Fuel Filter and MPG?

So after a good compression test I am wondering if I should bother replacing fuel filter. I may be wrong bit it appears someone has replaced the hose between filter and fuel rail, I assume that it has a lock fuel fitting at the fuel rail? But this one has just a regular hose pushed onto it and no hose clamp.

I want to finally get a definitive answer on a question about fuel filters. I have heard that you can get better MPG and SMOG results with a new filter, but for a 95 SL2 is that true? The way I picture it a used up fuel filter will deliver less fuel to the engine but I have heard that it actually forces more fuel into engine. Can anyone give me the actual answer on that?

Clogged up filters will reduce the flow, never increase flow of any fluid.
Think about it.
