A pinhole leak in the suction line from the tank to the pump can also cause it to empty out when it sits. these leaks at first only show as stains because it is a suction line. The rubber lines at either end or the clips where the steel line hooks tot he frame are the suspect spots.
A bad backflow valve in the pump can also cause this. To test, get it running, then shut it down and unhook the line where it goes into the pump. Only a little should come out, if a whole bunch comes out, that could be the trouble.
