As noted, there have been at least two significant crashes in which FC concerns about what eventually proved to be minor electrical issues caused sufficient distraction to result in fuel exhaustion and a crash right before landing. The particular ones that I recall are a United DC8 in Portland, Oregon and a Eastern L1011 at Miami. But I am sure there are others.
