Re: Ran out of gas, 4 gallons back in, won\'t start!
it wouldnt be a bad idea to change the filter after running out of gas in any vehicle. another thing you may want to try is to purge the air from the fuel rail. have someone turn the ignition on while you have the test port on the fuel rail open, that will allow the pump to pressurize the fuel system with fuel, and not get a 'bubble' in front of the fuel. once you finally get a fair amount of fuel coming from the port, its safe to assume you have a pressurized rail. also, do you live in an area that uses blended fuels during the winter?, you may have plugged the filter with loose varnish. just an idea
