I think the interval recommended by Ford is 3 years or 37,500 miles, whichever occurs first. Knowing that the TDCi is quite sensitive to fuel filters, it might be sensible to reduce this accordingly though.

Car; 2005 '55' Ford Mondeo ST220 5 Door Estate in Machine Silver with Recaro Light Flint leather interior.

Extras; Advanced Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone & Voice Control System • Touchscreen DVD Navigation System with 6 Disc CD Changer • Technology Pack (Xenon Headlamps & Privacy Glass) • Rear Seat Audio System • Rear Park Assist.

Modifications; Automatic Central Locking • Powder Coated Wheels.

Always make sure it's a Ford, Delphi or Bosch filter. I believe they should be replaced every 3yrs. I used to change mine at 18 months.

I plan to do mine at every service (annual) or every 10k miles. Only had it 8 months so far, but got it done when I bought it (2nd hand).
