I have had filters that the fuel would just drip thru. The fuel will flow differently depending on the filter media. I think the filters made for pumped fuel have a tighter micron rating.

yeah the filters for a gravity system look like a little pancake and just have fine wire mesh for the filter media, ones designed for a system with a fuel pump have the pleated paper element and look similar to the ones used on older carburated cars just smaller. i have had problems with air locks when using the paper style filters on a gravity system.
