Question filter

How often should you change your fuel filter?
I've been told ,every 10,000 thousand miles, same time you change your oil.
I don't have access to my manual at the moment,this topic just came up in
conversation.

not 100% sure,any help?
thanks , john m

Fuel filters are tough. One tank of less than pristine fuel and you might have to change them two or three times to get through the bad fuel. I'm guessing most owners do it annually with the oil/filter.

I have a 2013 Ford F-53 chassis and the book says it is inside the tank and does not require service.

I replace mine during my annual service. I keep a spare set in the coach and rotate that set onto the coach and replace with another new set.

While on the road I inspect the engine almost every day, especially after a long drive. My primary filter has the clear bowl at the bottom, I keep an eye on it for any build of "stuff". If it starts looking bad I will change the filter.

Other then that I change annually with service.
