Thats a jeep! the fuel pump is located at the top rear or the tank so when you park it nose down it cant suck fuel when the tank is low but normally its with less gas than that! but you shouldnt have to add that much to start it. you have stared the line by cranking it. So next time and less turn the key over and off several time without starting it. then give it a try, its priming the pump
