Default 99 Mustang V6 - Fuel pump issue?

I have had an extensive issue with my 99 mustang v6 over the past 3 years. Three years ago, upon taking it out of storage for summer, it would not start despite the use of stabilizer. The fuel pump was fried. Had it replaced and it was starting. Within the first month, it was starting hard (long crank with an eventual fire). It was end of the fall and back into storage it went. The pump was under warranty, so I had another one put in the following the summer. Long story short, got it home after the second pump and still a long crank and then finally a fire. Also, seeing a small amount of black smoke momentarily upon starting. The mechanic is within a mile of my house. I kinda gave up on it. Now, this year brought it into another mechanic just because it wasn't working with the other mechanic. This new mechanic gives me the same diagnosis of fuel pump. New pump from prior year has less than 200 miles on it. The fuel pressure is low with a pressure guage (sits at 30 psi while running, but up to 10 psi with key in on position). Can I in good faith replace it for a third time? Both filters in tank and in line were replaced last year. Any suggestions would be helpful. Sure hate getting mad at the old mustang.
