Was the pressure sensor and its wiring checked or replaced?

replaced the pressure sensor - worked fine for a few miles then same fault - thought it could be a dodgy fuel guage and that it was simply running out of fuel, put £20 of diesel in and it took me about 6 miles before the engine light came on again and the engine stopped again - waited 5 mins, started up no problems and drove 5 miles home... ?
