Just an FYI, I had a similar problem, and after replacing the fuel pump and having no luck, I traced every bit of the lines and found two pin-hole sized leaks on the suction side; the fuel bowl was emptying because it was sucking air. Think when you were little and had a soda straw with a hole in it....
Anyway, I couldn't find it at first. What I finally ended up having to do was unhook both fuel lines--suction and return, and plug one end, then hook up the outlet of a vacuum pump set to about 10 psi (use good hose clamps here--trust me!)
I found two wet spots on the suction side that were just big enough to cause the problems.
