I usually only let the bowl drain for a few seconds, then pull the filter. Once the filter is out, drain it completely. This should rinse out any sediment that may have accumilated on the filter. With the filter out, I refill about half way with either ATF or gasoline (either will work, just looking for something with a solvent property) and let it sit while I go about another task (like draining the oil). Before installing new filter, drain the ATF/gaslone and refill bowl half way with either fresh ATF or Seafoam. Reinstall new filter and fire her up.
Most guys just drain and install a fresh filter with no issues. I like to make sure there is no sediment at the bottom of the bowl, hence the extra step. Running concentrated ATF or Seafoam directly in the bowl gives the injectors a nice purge. Can't say I notice a difference every time I do it, but i certainly noticed a difference before/after the first time as far as injector noise.
Happy to say I believe I've done my last filter change with a fuel bowl however, as the truck is getting E-fuel and a WVO conversion this winter.
