Fuel filter

I can never remember which way is up. I think it's this way but I'm not sure. Does anyone know? Click image for larger version

When they used to have charcoal pellets in the metal can portion, they printed "This end up" on that end. But they switched to treated water repellent filter material some years back and it's no longer marked? Maybe it doesn't matter now, but I still put them in with the can up!! As a primary filter they still work very good. Secondary filters never have anything in them.

I'd put it in the same way as the one I just took out.

Well, I'm the one who put in the last one and the one before that but I was never sure if it was the right way up.

Flow needs to go from outside into center core. Dirt should collect and be visible on outside of pleated paper element. Can you tell direction of fuel flow??
