I think the fuel filter is part of the INSPECTION II or III service which is 100,000 miles.

I changed my fuel filter at 66,000 miles after my car was sitting in storage for a year. The fuel was extremely dirty when I cracked it open.

There is no "performance" gain but I your car would definately thank you. Changing your fuel filter is extremely easy. Just a little messy that is all.

Good luck
