There is no "Draw Straw" on the stock system. It is contained inside fuel canister module. But you are probably right in general. Original modules have some screens and one way valves in them that get old and damaged allowing the canister reserve for steep hills and turns and stopping to loose its fuel so that when low on fuel it all goes to the front of the tank and sucks air, killing it and often needing bleeding to get going. We call it the "1/4 tank problem". If the case, the answer is module replacement or keeping it fuller, over 1/4 tank full.
However this is not a problem going donw the straight road crusing. Only on steep hills, hard sharp turns or sharp stopping.
