Hyundai Accent Fuel Filter Replacement

Q. Vincent, 2001 Hyundai Accent, 1.5 liter engine. I need to change the fuel filter. I have purchased a new one at NAPA, but I cannot locate it on the car. I thought it would be under the car near the tank. The filter looks like a normal in-line type of filter found under like on most small cars. If you could please tell me the exact location I would be grateful.

Thank you for your help,

The fuel filter is located under the rear seat.
