Default How often do you change the fuel filter in you ranger??

Like the title ask how often do you change the fuel filter in your ranger. I just replaced mine and I only have 15 k. Was that smart or a waste of 20 bucks?

Every time my owners manual says to change it. Changing it more frequently isn't a bad thing.

I think Fords are notorious for bad mileage. My 3.0 2wd gets about 11-12mpg but I do short distance hops turning the truck on and off like a light switch.
