    It could be a sticky ball valve thing. Try filling her all the way to the top the extra weight of the fuel might help dislodge it. The fuel sender unit and fuel pump are one unit and are submerged in the fuel tank. If you need instructions on how to remove it and inspect it let me know i shall dig the haynes manual out.

    fuel prices gone up = less fuel in your tank
    being heavy on the go pedal = fuel not lasting v. long

    someone had to do it lol
