Hmm, sputter with empty fuel filter

I have an TB Bronco with an 18 HP Kohler Courage and runs great but when she idles for a bit she'll sputter now and then and then run just fine. I did notice today that just as the engine started to sputter I can see that the fuel filter is completely empty of gas, but then will begin to fill and run fine again. Its never completely stalled and runs strong otherwise.

I bought the Bronco last March and never had this issue all last year . Any ideas?

I did replace the fuel filter earlier this year, however, it is not an OEM Kohler fuel filter. This one is a basic "all purpose" fuel filter that's about the same size but is clear plastic.
