running out of fuel....

I was a rolling home... running Looney, pretty empty roads hitting 80-110.. accelerating wot in 4rth (or 3rd) I felt a shudder like the transmission was slipping/grabbing. Babied it home (around 85 ). This morning, took it for a spin, under wot was able to repeat the condition in 2nd, and realized I was running out of fuel to the engine. ((Recently, it would not start and had the 'electonic injector control module relay ?? replaced no problems since..)). Any idea as to a fix??? Thanks...

I thought of that.....briefly. It's a genetically related deficiency. I have a heavy right foot, from my dad's side of the family (Truck drivers, they would load it like a box car, then drive it like a stock car). So.. it is really not MY FAULT. And when Osama... er ..Obama is elected I will be able to get money to pay for me TO STAY HOME so I can keep that right foot elevated... cept for dragging it to the mailbox to get my instability checks..

I sometimes have the same affliction. My doctor has me on some new medications.. I am thinking about towing my boat just to slow me down.

well if you find a cheap way to fix that problem, I'm sure EVERYONE would like to know

I run out of fuel often. The truck just falls on its face at high RPM- I am assuming its a fueling issue.
