What have we learned ? I assume you got it started , first , low fuel is bad for the pump . I would have put it neutral and rolled down hill but you'd have a problem with steering and brakes .


Add 5 gallons of fuel, cycle the key a few times than start the engine if you haven’t burned out the fuel pump due to lack of fuel. Never run less than 1/4 tank.
