strange 93 prelude h22a fuel problem

93 prelude vtec h22a 5 speed. stock digital fuel gage. Bought the car last spring and since then have had an issue with the fuel system. as soon as my fuel gage gets down to about 1/3 tank my car randomly dies out like its not getting fuel. it doesnt shut the engine off completely, it just boggs down for about 3-7 seconds and the motor wont accelerate, it stays at idle speed. if i pump the pedal while its doing this it just seems to bogg down worse and slow me down. the lower my fuel gage goes after 1/3 the faster the fuel bars go down on the gage, and it boggs down more often. I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel lines, gas cap, and it had a new filler neck when i bought the car. i dropped the tank and i couldnt see any rust inside. the top of the tank is a little tender but i dont think there are any holes.
Any useful comments or suggestions would be appreciated. thanks

Did you replace the fuel pump pick-up also? Could have a cracked tube giving you the "bent straw effect".
