How much gas did you put in tank ? I know that back in the day they would put the fuel filter inside of the gas tank on the bottom of the tank and soon as you put gas it would pick it up but the newer vehicle the fuel filter sits up off the bottom to keep from picking up junk at bottom of tank so you may have to add a little more for the filter to pick the gas up.

That's true. Good info. If I may add, since the gas is what cools the pump, sometimes running out will burn it up

Try this: grab a small hammer, or rock, block of wood etc. while some cranks the engine over you pound on the bottom of the fuel tank right in the center, if it starts then you for sure it is the fuel pump so don't shut it off, until you get it where you want it so you can drop the tank and replace the fuel pump/sender assembly and don't forget to replace the fuel pump relay and fuel filter also.
