STARTER OR FUEL SYSTEM?

1993 Lexus SC 300 • 6 cylinder Automatic • 180,000 miles

I have a 1993 Lexus SC300. Often I have a hard time starting it up, it makes a loud clicking noise and takes me 2-20 tries to start. I thought it was my starter, but I noticed that when I have over 1/4 tank of gas it starts almost every time, but if I'm close to empty, that's when it doesn't want to start. Does it sounds more like a fuel system problem or is it my starter?

Check the fuel pressure with a gauge if its within specs if okay-might be the ignition switch
