Won't start, like it has no fuel, no power to chip, or pcm

I was trying down the road then my truck just lost power and shut off, i tried to start it again but it was like the batteries where disconnected, so i tried again and it would crank but it was obvious it wasnt getting fuel, so i looked down at my chip and it was not lit up, i towed it home and i opened the fuse panel looking for a blown fuse to the PCM, well the bottom right fuse, #30 , was blown so i replaced it and as soon as i tried to turn it over it blew again, whats the deal?

that fuse controlls PCM relay coil, fuel heater, wastegate solenoid, Injector driver module relay coil. I've heard of several fuel heaters shorting out, that is where I would start. Most people just cut the wires going to the fuel heater.
