There should be a manual pump on top of the fuel filter . pop the hood and look for the fuel filter and try to pump the fuel filter. that should pump the gas to the intake and start the engine.similar to priming a carburetor .

Year make and model ? You may have cooked the pump or picked up some junk from the bottom of the tank, if the fuel pump is in the tank.
Running on less than 1/4 tank is tough on an in-tank pump.

Ran 1/2 gal bad gas truck started chugging check


Hi ! a easy way to possibly help this is to get a can of sea foam at the parts store and dump it in your tank it may help dissolve any goop that is in there and it helps renew bad gas ,also if this does not help remove your fuel filter and blow through it it may now have gotten a bit gumped up ,not a bad idea if you havnt done that for a few years anyway ,mostly the sea foam should help!

Ran out of gas and won't restart


its possible that the fuel pump has been compromised. most pumps dont like being run dry, and it causes them to burn up.

check to see if you hear the pump engage when you turn the key to the on position, sounds like a hum in the rear.

try to put 2 gal of gas.
if you run out of gas, the system require little more than a gal of gas to get from the pump in the tank through the filter to the injector. Approximately 1gal just to pressured the fuel rail.
