Engine oil drain plug washer

I just bought two oil filters for my BRZ. These are the OEM filters, same P/N as installed at factory.

Anyway, got home and opened one of the boxes to look at the filter. Filter is correct but is a drain plug seal washer supposed to be included as mine did not come with any drain plug washer.

I though the washers came with the factory OEM filters. Now I've got to get back to dealer (70 miles away) or can someone point me towards an online Subaru parts outlet that I could order these washers from?

Thanks!

They don't come with the filters. The parts guy should have offered them.

You can hit up an auto parts store. They're 16mm crush washers.

OR... You could get a Fumoto valve and never deal with washers again. (Among other oil change headaches)
