There appear to be differences between the owners manual and the maintenance schedule link listed above.

The fuel filter. The linked site says 'Inspect and replace if necessary'. The manual just says replace. I take that as having two different meanings. The manual appears to be overly cautious to just say replace.

I replaced mine at 28k miles and that think was like as black as asphalt. I think 30k is pushing it honestly. The RAM Ecodiesel had a TSB that adjusted theirs to like every 15k or 20k miles. A $26 filter is cheaper than replacing the injectors.

Agreed.... I changed them at 25k and they needed it. Not hard at all and will do every 25K max as clean fuel is critical to these engines.....

Changed mine at around 28,000 miles and that is a long time for fuel filters.
My Super Duty was like 10,000 miles so I thought this was a huge improvement.
