It is possible the fuel pump strainer in the gas tank is plugged up. It would be a matter of getting to it and replacing it. But you go threw all that work you may as well replace the fuel pump also. Have someone starting the vehicle and when she goes to die on you, be there with some starting fluid, and spray a little bit into the throttle body. If the engine picks back up and runs again, that is a good indication that it is not getting fuel.
