You may have burned up the pump running it dry. The pump is inside the gas tank and the gas cools it. Or picked up crap off the bottom of the tank by allowing it to get that low, and clogging it up. First check the filter... it is under the car on the drivers side near where the back seat passengers feet are. Then check the fuse.

I'm just surprised that someone knowledgeable to run a Fuel Pressure Test would blatantly overlook keeping an adequate amount of fuel in their car to begin with.

A 22 year old fuel pump could go at any time.

Good point. I suppose it might have went kaput anyhoo w/o running dry.
