Although Im currently undergoing some fuel system problems I had been changing every 10k. Now with over 60k that seemed to work out best for me.

I change them every spring and fall. So in terms of miles it's like 6000 miles on a set of filters at the most. I bend over and buy mine right form ford just because it's handy to.

On edit: I'm a 6.0.
