Whoa. We need to start over. Put gas in distributor.. something is a miscommunication here. But for beginners, ask the tow company what they are willing/able to do. They caused the problem... maybe. But running out of gas in the first place can and will burn up fuel pump

Besides, the 1997 GMC has no inertia or fuel shut off system. That was implemented by Ford in the '90's and later by Toyota. Somebody told you wrong. The '97 GMC has no such feature
