Possible air lock in fuel system ???

Just another thought, if you had run it down into the red they may be a chance of some in the tank which it may of picked up causing a blockage, so I would take off the fuel pipe coming from the tank to the fuel filter, turn her over and see if you have fuel being pumped from the tank, then work it forward from there.

Hope this helps
