You could have a plugged filter from getting so low on gas. More likely though is that the fuel pump is on it's way out. These fuel pumps are not designed to run dry. They need the fuel for cooling and to lubricate the pump. Some pumps will fail with just one time running out of gas. Check for fuel pressure on the fuel rail on engine.
