Are you sure its a fuel problem not a electrical problem like the alternator ?

Two, probably separate, issues. The guage is could be the result of a bad sender unit in the tank. The "start-then-stop" symptom could be fuel related but could also be electrical (coil pole piece, sensor, etc). Are you getting any diagnostic codes that would indicate a failure (can be checked at local auto parts store)? Also, are you sure you have enough fuel in the tank.........?
