Fuel filter light?

I filled both tanks last night at a station u use 95% of the time. I clicked over to my rear tanks and drove about 15 miles to work. Plugged in and she sat for about 8 hrs in 7 deg weather. When I left I started her and let her warm up (needle off the peg) about 3 miles of <35mph my fuel filter light starts flickering then goes on steady. About 5 miles of highway speeds ive lost all power and its acting like my tank is empty. I click to my front tank and my light goes off almost immediately. Truck smooths put and I got her home. There was a strong unburned fuel smell. No leaks filter looks clean. Its got about 8k miles on it. Im running power services winter additive. Any thoughts? Sounds to me like I've got an issue with my rear tank. Just blows because I just filled her to the brim

Bueller...bueller.......any thoughts. I think im going to take a look at it when I get off. Are the fuel lines from the tank to the selector valve rubber? Im wondering if it cold rotted and I leaking or maybe sucking air?

Not sure but it does sound like you lost suction to the rear tank
