Primary Fuel Filter Replace 6C8.3, To bowl or not to bowl???

There are 2 options in replacing my primary fuel filter. One comes with new plastic bowl (Fleetguard FS1242B) and the other reuses one's existing clear plastic bowl (Fleetguard FS1242). Only $10 difference ( I can run @ 60 mph for 10 more minutes...LOL) but what's benefit of new bowl?? Thanks in advance

You get new O rings with FS1242 and can use the old bowl if it is ok.
I've been reusing mine for 3 filter changes now.
If the cost doesn't bother you- go with the FS1242B and keep the old bowl as a spare.
I order 6 filters at a time and the extra $ for the bowls adds up.
