If the check engine light is on, take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them scan for fault codes generated by the computer. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. Getting the codes should narrow down the cause. It could be a problem in the evap system or the fuel delivery system, but getting the codes will help identify the cause. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Car runs great then stops like its starving for gas, let it sit for couple hours then it starts up again

Check the ignition module, and fuel pressure when the trouble is present. Those are the two things on Neons that cause this problem
