    £160 to change a fuel filter! Someone had their pants pulled down that day.

    Mind you, i was alarmed when i asked a garage at what interval they change a fuel filter at when the answered "every 40,000 miles"

    For the sake of about £13 and 5 mins of your time you may as well do it at every oil change.
