Question about fuel filter on Dauntless V6

Just installed a new poly gas tank. It has fuel and return lines that end up at
the fuel pump. The pump has a fuel in, fuel out, and a return line. On my 1971 Commando I noticed that the parts catalog calls for a metal fuel filter with 3 ports.
In, out and return. Dumb question maybe, but where would the return of the fuel filter.go?
I ask because I am trying to chase down a fuel starvation problem and I have replaced the tank and lines, the carb, a rebuilt Rochester 2gc, and the fuel pump.
I have a clear generic see through filter on now, and when the car starts up it fills to about 1/2 full and after about 10 minutes it appears almost empty.
The jeep keeps running but it just looks abnormal to me. Is it?

Old post, but for anyone else that sees this, if your fuel pump has a vapor return (3 line), you don't need a filter that has one.

Have a clear Fram filter on my commando, and it also looks like it only fills about 1/2 way. Not a concern.
