Don't use starter fluid the car becomes addicted to it very quickly. Have you checked that there is power supply to the pump / fuse / relay. If there is then check that the fuel is flowing through the pipes / fuel filter and into the fuel rail

2000 Audi A8 fuel problem... car run for about 45 minutes, then start sputtering, then shuts off. Fuel tank has been replaced....still experiencing same problem

Did you replace the fuel pump/siphon filter as well? And there is also a fuel filter inline. You could have multiple things wrong but try replacing the fuel filter first. If its turning off after is getting hot I'm thinking a CPS (crank position sensor) is usually a common diagnossis for those issues.
