Yer welcome bud.  Might want to check the fuel tank top- access from rear seat-
the rear of the seat cushion folds forward- should be a little plastic handle
there to grab if it isn't stuffed down the seat bolster.  You fold them when
dropping the rear seat down to open the trunk space etc, but you probably know
that by now.  Anyway, the access panel in the right underseat vicinity exposes
the tank top.  I wonder if there's a loose connection..., just enough to suck
air, but not enough to really leak to show up. Some crummy little check valve
that was supposed to be changed too- cold weather climate cars needed this- it
was a trouble spot for gelling early on, and needs to be done if car moves from
say Az to cold area. Dirty sock on pickup tube- too much suction causing air
 leak where there wouldn't normally be? Just some ideas...
