Fuel problem will make it not start. But it should still crank.

Check your battery cables, corrosion in the connections can cause this also weak batteries. Then check the main fuses in the power box under the hood. A gauge reading below empty is telling me that there is no voltage for that gauge or the gauge is completely fired.
