Fuel influenced by reduced prssure (vacuum) and heat (injector drivers, lines across the engine etc will begin to vaporize in the lines. This air accumulates in the filter. Adding lift supply pressure back as close to the tank as possible is the best idea.
Also a concern would be pump wear debris flowing unfiltered to the pump.
