The meter is a good way to test for VOLTAGE going to the fuel pump. Find the wire (or two) that go to the fuel pump. Note where they go and disconnect them. Set your meter to VOLTS DC and attach the leads to the wires at the fuel pump. You may need someone to turn the key to ON (NOT Start) and watch the meter to verify ~12 volts. If it shows a NEGATIVE voltage, switch the leads around. You should get positive voltage then. If there is no movement of the meter needle or no voltage shows up on the screen, then there's no power getting to the fuel pump. If there's just ONE wire going to the pump, use the red lead from your meter as this is the power. Put the black lead to a good, clean body (or frame) spot as a ground. Watch for the same thing, ~12 Dc voltage.
Note: If you put the meter on OHMS and put power to the wiring, you'll pop the fuse in the meter.
