Get some gas in there to see.
Good luck on this working out for you.
Well I tried adding some more fuel and also pounded on the top of the fuel pump a bit. The car did then start, but it only made it a few more miles down the road before it started to fail again. I ordered the parts today so hopefully will have them tomorrow including the filter. Am I right in saying symptoms of this issue would include the car acting like its effectively out of fuel, possible miss/back fire due to the fuel air mix being messed up? Interestingly I've had no dash lights come on and no error codes indicated.
