Question about Cars & Trucks
The fuel pump does not have to be cleaned, just run some clean gas through it. Hopefully the filter caught the majority of the rust as it is "upstream" of your fuel pump.
You only have about 2-3 psi from the fuel pump.

Hey there boatright33,
A few things things immediately come to mind.
There may be a problem with the engine controller. You could check the ODBII onboard diagnostics. Auto part stores will usually do this for you at no cost.
When you pulled the ones that were/went bad, how did the filters look? Could there be particulate matter still in the tank causing them to fail.
I always put this one off until last. Check the injectors. Are they gummed up?
Let me know what you find out

fuel pump is burned out from running out of gas, the pump is cooled by the gas it sits in inside the fuel tank, when you run low on fuel or out of gas you over heat the pump severely and the bearings in the pump seize up, have seen it dozens of times in my 30 years of dealer work.
