Check your fuel filter,may be stopped up,when you run low on fuel.

If you've replaced the fuel pump the new pump's pick up tube may not be reaching the bottom of the tank. HTH. -Jim

Changed fuel filter, and fuel pump.got new one that was made in Mexico, it was cheap. Do you think it could be fuel pump.but it does good till it get low on fuel.im sure it is down all the way to bottom of tank.it still has about 3 or 4 gallons lefted when it acts up.

I think it's the fuel pump. We had the same thing happen to a delivery vehicle in work. We replaced the fuel pump and when the gas gauge got to half it would die. HTH. -Jim
