Its a matter of getting the fuel back up to the engine. If you run out of gas, a lot of times the fuel pump will burn out. Should check the fuel pressure also.

Have no idea how 2 go about checking the fuel pressure but have heard something to the effect of priming the carburetor...

You need a fuel pressure gauge and then it gets hooked up into the fuel line. Then you turn the key to the on position and see what kind of fuel pressure there is. I guess first would be to turn the key to on and see if you can hear the fuel pump run.

Ok, now I've read up on the comments more... you definitely have a plugged fuel filter... end of story, just go get one and the autoparts guys can help a little by directing you on how to replace it GL

Just trying to diagnose the problem, there is a sock on the end of the fuel pump in the gas tank that can be full of crap now, which is more likely than the fuel filter. Both should be changed, and a fuel pump likes to burn out when running out of gas. Helps to know if it runs or not.
