Sounds like you ran out of fuel and either burned out the pump or you got some dirt in the fuel lines. How is the fuel pressure? When you trying to initially start the car, did you prime the fuel system to get the pressure up high enough? ( Turn the key on and off a few times) Either way the fuel lines and pump need t o be inspected.
