You might have pulled the dirt from the bottom of the fuel tank into the filter putting too much strain on the pump, The pump might be too weak as well and or the strainer on the pump is clogged as well.

Mine did the same thing ,didn't run out of gas but was low, and was on a steep hill and it was the fuel pump it stopped working.
