Almost anything could have happened, from mice to fuel separation.
You need to test for fuel pressure at the test tap on the fuel rail. You can borrow the tools under the loaner programs at Autozone or Advance or possibly Oreilys autoparts.
While you are there, ask if you have a fuel pressure regulator valve and where it is. You may need to test the pressure at the initial test tap on the fuel rail and then disconnect the feedline from the tank and test the pressure to the pressure regulator( tank side). This would tell you where the blockage may be.

It could be a simple as a fuel filter or as bad as a fuelpump.

Mice, I think I mentioned Mice, seem to like electric wiring. If they ate your wiring then you need to invest in a different harness.

At the point of Comprehensive Insurance coverage, damage from rodents may be covered by your policy. Comprehensive may have zero,0, deductible and you can have someone else fix your car with the Insurance company paying for it. Surely a great opportunity.

I hope my solution is helpful to you.

Could be several issues. Is the gas fresh? This newer ethanol gas goes bad FAST and if it sat for years it probably won't run the car well. Is the exhaust clear of any animal nests? What is the exact make and model of the car?

You will need to check fuel pressure first off. It sounds like the fuel system is bleeding off after you shut the truck off. The most common points of bleed off is the fuel pump and the fuel pressure regulator.
Also with all of the time it has sat you may need to run all of the gas you have out of it and fill it up with freash fuel!
