Won't Start

After a 100 mile trip today I was about 3/4 of the way home and the fuel light came on, so I said to my self only about 20 miles until home so I kept going. Once I got home I went to the fuel station and it sounded like my truck was misfiring. I filled it to the brim at 4.49 per gallon tried to start it up and nothing kept cranking and cranking. The truck is still under warranty but I was wondering if it was something stupid I could fix.

You got an electric pump, you should be able to cycle the key without cranking and hear the pump running, it may be making squishing sounds if it has air in the system. Keep cycling the key every time the ump stops until it sounds right then try to start. Also if you cranked on it a lot it is possible that you have pumped the HPOP reservoir dry. There is a small plug on top of the reservoir that you can take out and look into to make sure it has oil within 1” or less from the top.

I can hear the fuel pump turning on and off with the cycle of the key, where is this HPOP reservoir that you are talking about?

On top of the engine in front of the fuel filter cap.
