Stuck in Wichita Falls, possible fuel pump issue? HELP!

I'm currently in Wichita Falls, Tx. And I'm getting the dreaded "car will crank and crank, no start problem". I'm 400 miles from home with no tools and no idea. Did the same thing yesterday and after multiple attempts basically just turned over and ran fine. Went out to dinner last night(2 more starts) no issues! Now the crank monster is back and I seem to be stuck. Anyone who is in the area that could help/can recommend a shop would be awesome. Thanks guys!

Ah no worries man. Any ideas? It seems intermittent, and once it catches its golden? I can smell fuel too, so although it kinda seems like a fuel issue it does seem to be pumping

Oh and btw, the car is a 330I 4Dr ZHP
