How often Fuel & Air Filter change ?
#1
I've read that its every 50'000 miles for the fuel and air filter ? Can anyone confirm that ?

I have a B9 1.6 diesel , currently 81'000 miles done at the moment.

I change mine @ 25,000 miles just to be on the safe side.

Wow !
I'm surprised, where did you get this info ?
I'm obviously different in oppinions on how often to change the filters, for example, I change my Air Filter every Five Thousand Miles, they only cost average £7, & help your fuel consumption so much, easy to change & save you £ss in fuel, as for the Fuel Filter, change it every year, no matter what mileage you have done, or if Twelve Thousand miles comes sooner, change it then, filters don't cost much, & are beneficial all round, I also change my Oil every Five Thousand miles & Oil Filter alternatively at Ten Thousand.
Hope this helps.       Smile

Air filters can go far more milage than you are changing them at - you will find no fuel benefit unless driving in very dusty conditions.

Fuel filters are 3 years or 36K no real benefit form over changing them also.

If you are changing your oil without the filter you are making a big mistake.

But whatever keeps us happy.

I totally agree.What's the point of leaving a full,dirty filter in place.It pollutes the new oil within minutes. Rolleyes

I change all my oil and filters once a year if the thing passes it's MOT. It gets a full service as a reward. The parts are so cheap it makes no sense to skimp.

What was I thinking of ?
you're right Polar, I do change Oil Filter every time I change the Oil,

The reason I change the Fuel Filter every year is I get a build up of water in the housing.

Changing the Diesel filter on my 2012 XTR is not a easy job ( not as easy as on a VW golf) I bought one while on speical offer with the view to changing it myself but gave up when looked what was invovled in the Workshop manual
