How much Fuel have you put it so far? (not sure what "Got it started after waiting again tipped tank off" means...) 2 gallons may not be enough!
Hearing the fuel pump running is NOT the same as confirming you have fuel delivery. Look above the pass ft tire, you'll see a 3/8" metal tube, against the motor that ends there, it's the drain for the bowl (yellow lever you slide to the side). Get a cup, open the lever, drain the fuel bowl, look at the fuel, close the lever. Then, turn the key to the ON position (should hear the pump) for 15 secs. Drain the fuel bowl again, whaddya got?
What year is your truck? (ALWAYS a good idea to include when you're asking for help)
Pre '01+1/2 (identified by a Trans Temp Gauge in the Instrument Cluster NOT being there) you should see the Tach Needle rise-up slightly as you crank it over on the Starter to confirm a functioning CPS.
