Since you ran the fuel down to nothing, you might have burned out the fuel pump. That's why I always recommend you never let the fuel tank get to under 1/4 tank. Can you hear the fuel pump prime/buzz when you turn the key before starting? If you can hear it, you might have pulled up some dirt from the bottom of the fuel tank into the filters and injectors. You might have to have the fuel system cleaned out.
