Hello, Other than filling it with some go-juice, cycle the key several times from off to on...off to on. Listen for fuel pump sound. If the car doesn't energize the fuel pump, it may have burned out from running dry, even for only seconds. Don't fry your starter...crank only for 20 seconds at a time, then rest for 3 minutes. Hope this Helps, AskTrannyMan

When you run a car out of gas, it sucks up all the garbage out of the bottom of the tank. Also, always keep a car with an in tank electric fuel pump at least 1/4 full. The gas immersion helps cool the pump. You probably have a clogged fuel filter, clogged fuel line, or have destroyed the fuel pump. Good luck, and do not let cars run out of gas.
