90% certain it is the electric fuel pump in the fuel tank. They are NOTORIOUS for failures like this. With car running ok, remove fuel cap, put your ear near the hole and listen while someone in the car turns on the key WITHOUT starting engine. You should hear a whirring sound for a second or two. Next time car won't start,do this again. Bet you just hear a click or nothing at all. This means pump is failing.
