Lack Of fuel most likely fired the fuel pump in the tank. Today's vehicles have the fuel pump in the tanks and the fuel is used to cool the pumps, if the fuel level drops below 1/4 then the fuel pump is no longer covered by fuel therefore it starts to run too hot and eventually locks up. You can ask any tech out there and they will tell you never run less than 1/4 tank of fuel.
