Should the fuel filter and lower drive oil be changed every season?
Thanks

Simple answer - That is good practice to reduce future (read "on the water") problems...

And changing the differential and transmission fluid in your tow vehicle every 50,000 is also good practice.

Well, changing oil/filters is, of course, a good idea, considering that keeping any machine in top condition will help it's performance.

However, not everyone has the time, money, or inclination to put that much effort into their machines. If one wants to be smart, but not be overzealous, about how many years can you go between changes without seeing a significant performance drop?
