from a newbie, so for what it is worth, when you run the fuel down very low then the pump starts to pick up all the junk in the tank that was floating around. There is debris and water in the tank of even the best maintained system. If you are shopping at discount/low end fuel spots then you are more likely to get debris and other unmentionables in the fuel line. You could have also just purchased some bad fuel.
Drain off some of the fuel from the filter to hopefully remove water from the filter. Drive some and add some additives (lucas fuel treatment) to help break things down.
Of course, it could easily just be air in the fuel line and should clear itself up.
