Is the fuel pump floating in the tank or is it mounted so it pulls from the bottom of the lowest point in the tank? If it pulls from the bottom of the tank I would think that all the stuff like water and any other thing that may have made it's way into the tank would be sucked out no matter how much fuel you have in the tank.
I have sweated a few times if I would make it to the next gas station, at speeds over 100 mph the fuel goes very quickly when it gets down to where the light comes on, so my tank must be clean! I haven't had any trouble!
