    It must have drawn in all the ****e when you ran out, so you changed the filter and fuel pump because it was slugish, and now it wont go properly.

    It sounds like it has fuel starvation, make sure the lift pump is lifting the fuel and that the pump is not one of them that has the inlet and outlet the wrong way around. Also spin the engine just to make sure it is actually operating the lift pump with the pipe off.

    I would start there mate.

    Sounds like the lift pump is not working properly.
