Might be time to drop the fuel tank and make some repairs to the pickup tube.
There are some mods that address the fuel tank and lines.
Check this out.

Do some more asking and checking. From what I have read there is a possible problem with the pick up line in the tank which brought up the Hutch mod idea but I have not had this problem yet. I'm not sure if there are any check valves in this fuel system which could be letting the fuel drain back or not. Plenty of guys here know a lot more about it then I do. Hope you can track down the problem.
