Thanks for that thought, but I'm pretty sure that's not it. When it has happened, I have opened the gas cap, and the problem continues. How long should it take to re-prime the engine with gas?

Yeah, but my issues were 2 miles apart before the new fuel pump. The problem was easily replicated on a low-ish fuel tank.

It was the fuel pump

It seems that the problem was actually the fuel pump (I'm pretty sure). They replaced the pump after a warning light came on, and I have not had any issues since (about 200 miles later now).
