Default Fuel filter: Generic or OEM?

Does it matter whether you use the fuel filter that the dealership sells or a generic fuel filter from an autoparts store?

After owning 28 cars, there are a couple of items I only get at the dealer, where spec/quality just isn't the same in the auto parts store (and this extends to all car manufacturers/auto parts stores, IMO)....1) Fuel Filters , 2) PCV valves.

the Purolator filter is and has been just fine for gazillions of us and knowing which brands of pcv valves to stay away from is also better than spending too much $$$ at the dealer


and there are MANY parts that you shouldnt buy at an autoparts store, but I've never had any issue using purolator filters or pcv valves(they make BOTH for subaru's)

What's the biggest fuel filter they make? I want one that is hellaflush with the washer reservoir for that aggressive look.
