will definately be one in a diesel and more than likely an inline one if petrol, although some cars do not come with a fuel filter at all in petrols only.
your suppose to change a fuel filter every 37.5k miles on a diesel although i do mine every service and costs less then a tenner for a filter and gasket from unipart.

chances are there is a filter but its not a serviceable part as its part of the pump or inside the tank.
I wouldn't imagine the injectors would last long without one..
As John says, diesel filters should be changed quite regularly. on a diesel engine the filter should be in the engine bay..
