CHEVY FUEL SYSTEM

2002 Chevy Avalanche V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 120, 00 miles

I was running out of gas. Low Gas Light on, the vehicle made some hesitation arriving to the gas station. I place over 3 gal of gas to arrive home and the vehicle never started again. Notice that the gas gage never moved even placing more gas in the tank. Considering that it could be the fuel pump at the time of cranking the engine someone bang on the tank to see if the fuel pump was stocked or malfunctioning. Nothing happened. Check the fuse for fuel and they are in good shape. What would be your advise?

Thank you,

Sounds like the fuel pump burned up. They will overheat if you run less than 1/4 tank of fuel repeatedly.
