Default Car won't start after removing some fuel... Need help.

2011 Subaru Impreza 2.5L

Here's the story...

I filled the tank on a Friday night, drove 1/4 mile to my house and parked the car. Got a new car the next day and decided to take some of the gas from my Impreza before letting it go under bankruptcy. I removed the fuel line right before it connected to the hard lines running to the fuel rails. Put the line into a gas can and used the fuel pump to fill the gas can. I removed 9 gallons and reinstalled the gas line. After priming the line a couple times I tried starting the car. It started and ran for a couple seconds and stumbled out. The next time it started it ran for a shorter amount of time and stumbled out. Now it fires and dies immediately. I checked the plugs and they were great yet cleaned them anyways. Tested every fuse and they were all good. Reset the ECU and still nothing. I removed the fuel line to make sure the pump was building pressure and it was.

Does anyone know what this could be?
