Do check your fuel tank venting.

Even if your model doesn't have a USA style evaporative emissions system, it is possible (common 30 years ago or so) for cars with vented gas caps to get a clogging in the cap vent which would result in a gradual buildup (-down?) of vacuum in the fuel tank, preventing the pump from drawing any fuel and giving just the symptoms you describe. On some models you can test this quickly by driving without the fuel cap on, but some injected cars won't run properly without the cap in place. Vented caps and systems are common places for bugs to produce clogs on cars which have set unused for a while
