I would check for codes, there may be a Crankshaft sensor that is bad or something else. It sounds like it is losing spark and not fuel.

Your main bearings are worn out. The oil heats up and becomes more watery, thus losing pressure because the bearings tolerances for the oil required by the manufacturer is no longer there to fill the gaps . When the oil pressure drops below a set psi the computer cuts out the fuel pump. The concept is for running low on oil not worn bearings.
