Manufactures stipulate that the fuel filter is a lifetime part... But we all know this to be crap. So it is advised to change every 3rd oil change (as someone above stated - my Haynes Manual confirms this too {every 45,000 miles}).

However if you Google “fuel filter change”, you will come across a variety of opinions, but most seem to circle the topic of:
  1. The fuel quality and
  2. If the car is driven frequently

Personally I would change it every year.
