Which way round do I connect the fuel filter?

I just bought a B&S replacement fuel filter but the instructions on the pack do not indicate which way round to install it. Also there is no arrow on the body of the filter. Please advise, thanks.

The fuel filter should have an arrow on it, if it needs to face a particular direction. If there is not an arrow, then it can be installed either way.
