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.
Be eclectic.
