03 7.3 lost power now starts and dies

My 2003 F-350 lost power while driving @ 60 mph, would stumble with more pedal, no smoke... was able to limp home. I opened the drain on the filter housing while idling and drained off a few ounces of fuel, now it will start but barely runs then dies, no lights on dash, sounds like it's not getting fuel but it has half a tank and always gives me a low fuel light when low. 200K miles, daily driver and trouble free 'till now. Idea's?
Thanks!

Morning update

Okay, 12 hours later this morning I turn key on, listen to lift pump run and build pressure, start the engine and it runs perfectly. Took it for a couple of mile spin and everything seems normal... Glad it's running but now I don't trust it, changed the filter about 3K ago but will check it today.
Truck is equipped with propane injection but it was off at time of failure and I don't think it was the culprit.
Def seemed like a fuel delivery issue at the time, any ideas to check would be welcome.
Thanks

fuel issues can be due to hpop issues or ipr issues, no injection poressure equals no fuel?
i have seen ipr's fail

Sounds like a CPS problem, or possibly an IPR going bad. Get a full diagnostic ran. CPS will run around $25 and IPR from ford will be $225+. Before you start throwing parts at it get a full diagnostic ran.
