I don't know how often people are changing their fuel filter but a 20000 miles between it was rusty goop inside I'll have to look at it sooner

I suggest going with a Randakk's fuel filter.
WingAdmin did a review here.
Not only do they filter better, but you can open them up and clean them instead of replacing.

Aside from keeping an eye on your filter, you need to take a look at the inside of your tank, and maybe the fuel pump screen condition. That crap came from somewhere, and even if just a bad batch of gas (which I think is an overplayed reason), the screen on the pump could be compromised.

I have seen pictures of a 'delaminated' fuel filter. If that's your issue, find a better brand of filter. Maybe OEM Honda. I don't think ethanol will rust metal. Corrosion, maybe. Maybe some water in the fuel.

The brownish goop is most likely shellac deposits, not rust. Rust appears as flakes, and is hard. Goopy brown stuff is crap from the fuel.
