The line from the tank, to the filter and fuel pump have to be vacuum tight.

Also the tank has suction tube. It can get plugged with debris, or can be checked. You can remove it from the tank to check, it is just stuck into a rubber grommet.

If you remove it, you can hold finger over it while you suck on the fuel line , to see if it is vacuum tight.
