Default 89 s-10 stalls after a few mins of running

Ok We had a 89 s-10 110,000 miles. fuel injected. 4 speed 4 cyl.

Sitting down the barn for 3 years casue it had a hole in the tank. so i put enough gas in it to get me to the car pit on top the hill and i pull it on fix the hole fix all the broken breaklines. Fixed 2 broken fuel lines.
Ididnt have it running long enough before i brought it up to see if it did this but i know before it went down there it ran fine.

Well now i put fuel in it run it around the feild about 2 times and it just dies out it will do it at idle after a while also. I dont know whats causeing this.

My dad has no idea eathier. It has to sit about 5 mins then will start right back up and run for a few min. before it dies. We just want to use it to run around the farm. and it cant ever be road leagle any ways casue it was rolled a few years back and has a bent cab and no windshilds

Have you replaced the fuel filter? Since you worked on the tank, that's the first thing I'd look at. Sometimes a plugged filter will allow a little fuel to get through. Maybe just enough to make it run a minute or two, then it runs out of gas. (note: Fuel flow and pressure are different. You can have all the pressure in the world but if the gas can't get through the filter...) Also possible your fuel pump has gone bad. Suggest you check it for any codes. The computer knows all.
