Default Stalling when low on fuel

I used the search function and found this to be a common problem. My question, has anyone replaced the gas tank and fuel pump/filter and still had the car stall?
What would be the next step to cure this? The car is a 1993 SE.
Thanks

IF you replaced the tank, pump, and filter, the only thing left if its fuel related would be some blockage in the line, the regulator is either blocked on the internal screen or just failed/failing, or 1 or more injectors are going out

if you have access test the fuel pressure and see if the readings are in the green... if not its fuel related and youll need to test the latter or you have a bad pump, not usual but ive seen it happen
