As Dunc said check the earths first but I suspect they are fine

 

The injectors are obviously working because the car starts so is this  a control fault? Unplug the ECU and check for corrosion on the pins and plug 

 

Try disconnecting the fuel return and run it into a can, don't block it off its not meant to be blocked and see if it runs then

 

is it an auto?

 

Control or supply, either once running ie starter has disengaged they injectors stop firing or its not getting further fuel.

 

I think if the former it would stop dead almost immediately or fail to start.

 

As such i still think is priming the system but not switching on the pump once fired so running out of fuel.

It is a manual transmission, with working  cruise control, yes fuel will flow into a can if the fuel return pipe is disconnected 

 

Have you tried starting the car with the return off?

Two reasons

To see if the flow stops or the return is blocked and stalls the flow
