Need to check fuel pressure when it dies so you know for sure the problem is fuel.

If your fuel pumps prime when you put the key on run, but you don't get any more fuel pump operation afterwards, seems like it's not sensing that the engine is running. Could be a lot of different things, might start with checking for trouble codes stored in the computer.
