15k on the fuel filter is a bit premature I think unless you're running bio.

I've been told to make sure I keep up on changing my filters. What filters should I be replacing and how often should they be replaced?
I replace my oil and fuel filter every 5k and I run an AEM dry filter and clean regardless of how it looks every 8k... it’sa cheap price to pay imo for reliability. I also run XDP fuel additive every fill and XDP oil additive every oil change. I run AEM’s oil filter and k&n’s fuel filter. Whether it makes a huge difference or not idk, but I’m at 105k miles without fuel or oil system problems soooo?!

It's Important to use factory fuel filters. I used WIX 8k miles ago and changed the fuel filter then. It didn't fail but had 4 areas where it was bulging. I thought that with the extra surface area instead of a flat filter I was doing something good, ($35). Ordered 2 filters from Rock Auto, total cost $19 with shipping that are OE equivalent. I will change my oil at 20% to 25% oil life left, last was 8k miles and change the fuel filter at the same time. IMG_2693.JPGIMG_2694.JPG
