It has left me standed a couple of times.
Had the fuel pump replaced 3 years and 30,000 miles ago and was just sitting in traffic idling and the fuel pump went out again. It cost me $955 including the fuel filter replacement. One mechanic said running low on gas makes the in-tank fuel pump heat up and another said that running the tank low causes settlement to clog filter. I have gone the whole life of several vehicles without replacing the fuel pump (mechanical in old vehicles) ands this is getting ridiculous.

It just keep spending over and over but will not start I have sprayed starter fluid inside but it just spin
It would bog down and look power then pick up slowly . It wouldn't start half the time the gas indicator would say there was gas when there wasn't. Replaced the fuel pup. Recommend only new pump
