Suzuki dies as if out of gas

My wifes 97 Suzuki Swift (1.3L) will run for about a minute after start up, will then start to shudder and stutter progressively worse till it conks out. This just began 2 nights ago after she filled up at the local convenience store/gas station. Let it sit about an hour and the same thing will occur, its good for about a mile. All my armchair mechanic friends say fuel filter or injectors. I'm clueless, but could probably handle checking the filter if I knew where to find it......Any help out here

Start with the fuel filter, as you likely picked up junk from the station.

Follow your lines from the fuel tank and look for a thing shaped like a can. That is the fuel filter. Typically under the car, but on some might be bolted to the firewall.

A quick call to any Suzuki dealer should net the location in a jiffy. Pick up a repair manual to guide you through any repairs.
