Your battery is drained. jumping it gives you a temporary supply of power. There is NO connection to this and your fuel delivery other than not enough power. Fix the battery issue first. Charge it over night with a charger. If that don't work change the battery. If the battery dies WHILE you drive, change the alternator.
