Unless you have a gas tank leak (you would smell this!) or fuel line break you cannot be running out of fuel this quickly. You need an immediate fuel system inspection as if you are leaking fuel, this vehicle can catch on fire and or explode while driving. It will keep stalling if there is a leak because the fuel pressure keeps bottoming out and only pushing the accelerator down can increase the fuel pressure (this also forces more fuel out of the leak). Do not drive till inspected!
