Were you able to hear the fuel pump cycle for a few seconds when you turned the ignition key? If it was running well when put away I would more suspect a relay problem. The pump should run for a few seconds

if the relays are working. Fuel rail pressure is about 49 psi.

Injectors are 15 ohms. The relays can be swapped to see if that helps.

They are under the right side cover, also fuse is there.

Pump flows about 11 ounces in 30 seconds.

Might be easier to test if you reinstall the throttle body etc.
