Maybe there is a problem with the fuel pickup.

Your gas gauge may be not be accurate. How many gallons does it take to fill up from the halfway mark when you can't start it? You have a 15 gallon tank. If it takes that much, or close to it, to fill up the gas gauge is not reading correctly. HTH. -Jim
