Putting in $1 worth of gas won't cut it. You need to bury the pump inlet in fuel if it has lost prime. I always use at least 3 gallons say after cleaning pump intake filter and starting it back up.

I got burned up pumps back at the store when idiots (not you) brought them back after only putting maybe a cup of fuel in tank, they think it will suck that up.................................brand new pumps burned up, ridiculous.
