Question about 2006 Volkswagen Passat
Could be a faulty fuel pump, they are notorious for acting unpredictibly when they start to go bad. My bet is in a week it won't start at all. Try banging on the fuel tank the next time it won't start, if that fixes it it is prbably a fuel pump.
Running you fuel pump until its at E is hard/bad on your fuel pump since gasoline is the fuel pumps lubrication.

What if he checked for fuel pressure when starting up?
With the hood open, open the driver door till you hear the fuel pump activate (usually that funny buzzing sound from under the car when you open the driver door), run over to the engine bay and push the schraeder valve to see if the fuel pressure sprays out or just oozes out.
If it oozes out, that's a sign the fuel pump may be going bad or your fuel filter could be seriously clogged.
