Question 2 cycle gas tanks

Could anyone explain the theory behind the two lines going into the gas tank? One line is long and has the fuel filter on it. The other line is short and just sticks into the gas tank.

The two line system is to prime the carb. When the primer bulb is pushed fuel will be pull through the line with the filter and pumped onto the carb. The other line carries overflow fuel back to the tank. This is very helpful on machines with below the carb tanks.....Mike
