The fuel filter is in top of fuel tank ( under the handbrake ) it is a lifetime filter so I would not worry about it - the symptom of a blocked filter is low fuel pressure - and it would be more of a problem at high revs ( when more fuel passes through filter ),  I never looked at it during my 120,000 miles + in a MK1 ( but then again I never looked at tappets either ).

Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

The Haynes manual suggests changing it at (80K?). The part is cheap I think but it's an awkward job. If you're not experiencing any symptoms then I would suggest leaving it alone.

I changed my filter at 100.000 and it was dirty and worth changing (before it causes problems else where in the engine: like pump or injectors) : ;)

Even petrol filters are usually worth changing at 100K. These relatively large paper filters rarely block, but small particles do eventually migrate through the filter medium and leak through the filter.

Having said that, there's nothing to say that these tiny particles will cause any problems for the rest of the useful life of the car.
