Default Slow fuel pump = old filter?

Hi all,

The station I normally fill-up at pumps nice and slow. Very nice for filling up to do the brim with no foam. I guess it has been getting slower over the last few weeks, but why complain right?

Well I am filling up yesterday next to a delivery tanker and he is filling up as well. He complains about the fill-up speed (of course b/c he has a 125 gallon tank which he had been pumping for 45 mins already) and he says the station needs to change their filter to fix the problem.

My question is that if there is a filter problem, is fill-up speed the only thing to worry about, or could contaiminants be getting through to the vehicle fuel and filter?
