Fuel filters

Just wondering how often you guys change fuel filters. Mine last about 12000. Any tricks to it other than removal of intake tube and being a contortionist?

I change mine every other oil change, so about every 16K miles. You can't have big forearms thats for sure I use a strap wrech, and take it off that way. It looks daunting, and it's not real easy, but it can be done.

Yeah thats what I do with one hand under the fender and one through the top. You would think the a/c lines could have been routed different so as to have access from the top.

I wonder if there is a fairly easy way to mount a remote filter to get rid of the stocker?
