Yea, plugs would not get it going. You need to get the fuel pressure back. Check the fuel filter to see if it is plugged,

If you have an electric fuel pump running it out of gas probably burned out the fuel pump. Spray some starting fluid down the carburetor or throttle body, whichever you have. If it runs a few seconds on the starting fluid it's definitely a fuel problem. HTH. -Jim
