Fuel Supply while parked???

2003 Wrangler Sport .... Pulled it out on the street the other day to clear the driveway of snow and parked so that my passenger side was up on a bit of a snowbank, resulting in it being higher than the driver side ... when I went to leav an hour or so later, it was very difficult to start - as if it wasn't getting fuel. have never had this issue before or since ... wondering if this is some issue with the fuel pump or related components?

Can't see how that would effect your fuel flow or pressure unless you were very low on fuel.

X2... also how crooked where you. The fuel pickup is at the bottom of the center of the tank. Theoretically you could have half a tank of gas and run out if you tilted the tank 90 degrees
