Check the fuel injectors for pulsing.

Though you have fuel coming out of the main lines, the pressure could be low. Check the fuel pressure.

If vehicle had been idle for extended periods, check the engine compression. If you have coolant losses or overheating issues previously, you could have a bad head gasket.

The initial stalling might not have been due to running out of gas. Check the engine computer for trouble codes.
