Disconnect the fuel line on the fuel filter that goes to the gas tank, then have someone turn the key to the on position. If no fuel comes out, then you can be pretty sure its the fuel pump, or relay. If fuel does come out then chances are you have a clogged filter or a kink in the fuel line somewhere.
