Fuel Filters

How long do you guys let your fuel filters go before you replace them?

Every 10K is a good point. I bought my 05 with 24,000 miles on it. I don't know if the fuel filters had ever been changed on it. I had the 30,000 mile service done on it recently, which includes fuel filter changes. Boy, it made a difference in acceleration ( I believe my MPG has increased a little, also). I plan to change my filters every other oil change, which I have done at 5K. This is the schedule I will follow, unless I start having problems - thinking bad fuel, etc.

I must be different, I change mine every oil change at 5,000 miles. I use a fram filter. It comes with a new fuel bowl cap attached to the filter.

I was doing mine every 10k, but I have a ITP Pre pump kit now and includes an remote Baldwin filter and separator, so I'll go a little longer now. It's a pretty cool kit
