Re: ^^ Probably safer to do a full cycle on it^^

After replacing my pump, I drove around for week with a 5 gallon Jerry can in the trunk. Drove it to well below a quarter tank. Figured I was good. That was a year ago, and no problems since.

Re: At what mileage intervals should the timing belt be replaced?

I had my timing belt done on my 97 A8 at 80,000 miles. I am currently at 138,000. Do I need to do it again, and when? Thanks.

I didn't empty my tank when I did the fuel pump, but I only had a little more that a quarter tank.
