I don't have any information on how to change a lifetime fuel filter. All of my vehicles have fuel filters that can be regularly changed without dropping the fuel tank.

No, I own a 2005 Ford Focus ZXW and a 2002 Ford Windstar LX. That information is printed under my avatar over there where it says "What I drive" <----

I change all my fuel filters regularly. Sometimes I am lazy and put it off, but I've never gone more than a couple thousand miles over 25k before I changed filters. My wife's van gets a new filter yearly in Aug. Most of the time, my car gets a new filter yearly. Good luck with the lifetime fuel filter. If I were her, I would keep the car until about 100k miles or so then trade it in on something else. That way the fuel pump and filter will be someone else's problem.
