Question Van acting like it's out of gas...?

Hey, I have a ford e150 and every once in a while it will not start as if it doesn't have any gas in it, however there will be a quarter to half a tank of gas.
Whenever I add gas to it (even just a couple gallons) it instantly starts up.

*I know it isn't a default reading of the gas gauge because I will fill up the tank and I can only fit another 5 gallons or so...

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Make sure the gas tank vent is clear. What year E-150 is it ... what motor?

When you remove the gas cap is there a rushing sound of air in the filler tube?

Next time when it won't start try just removing and replacing the gas cap... see if it starts.
