Possible you've had a fitting come loose. Best thing to do would be to get a pressure gauge on it and see if you're getting enough output from the pump to get the pressure required for the engine to run.

Also,i have stupid question,is the gas gauge correct? may be as simple as putting gas in it,also the screen on the pump may have come off,or its possible that the pump itself is bad,very common,good luck!
