I ran out of gas in my Ford E150 Van and since putting gas back in it, it will run a short period and then cut off.
Try some alcohol based water remover additive next fill up. By running it that low you may have picked up water in the tank from condensation, which, being heavier than gas goes to the bottom then gets picked up and gets in to fuel system...not good. Hope this helps, The alcohol will mix with the water and burn through, if that is what the problem is
