How often Fuel Filter Change?

Hi all,
How often should the fuel filter be changed? Gotta change my oil and was wondering if I should change it as well. about 7000 miles on it.
thanks

The fuel filter does not stop 100% of the dirt and other debris. The longer you run a filter, more of the containments will be pumped through the injection system. That can cause damage injector and CP3 damage, and will be very expensive to repair.

You should change the fuel filter from 6K to 10k miles, and maybe even sooner, if you do not drive a lot. and it sits for extended times.
