95 7.3L not running

I am driving a 95 F 250. It has about 260,000 miles on it and I put about 80 miles on it per day commuting to work. It is a good old truck and works hard for me, but recently it quit on me. It was like it was running out of fuel. Then after a couple of tries it started back up and was fine. It did this a few times over the next few days and then it jut stopped running all together.

I did what i could with my limited mechanical knowledge. I changed the oil, and the fuel filter and put an anti gelling additive in the fuel. But it still won't run. any ideas??

95 not covered by the recall, but if it spins over and wont start...sounds like the CPS. When it spins over, does the tach move at all? If not...CPS
