    Same problem. Turned out to be a relatively common problem. Especially if you drive your vehicle at or near empty a lot, the fuel pump seals or filter basket or whatever dissolves or crumbles and blocks the passage of gas from the tank to the fuel filer. Bunch of pieces of broken up stuff in your gas tank blocking the passage of fuel out. The fix: replace the fuel pump and its seals or gasket or whatever comes with it. Runs fine after.
