Zappanut's reasonings is on target. This procedure needs to be repeated a few times. The electric pump will fill the lines until it senses pressure at the regulator. By turning the key off for a moment the pressure bleeds off. So when you repeat it starts its duty once again until pressurized. Each time this is done will eliminate any air bubbles that could be trapped. ALSO keep in mind that when a tank is sucked dry that it will also pick up 17yrs of debris thats accumulated in the bottom of the tank sooooooooo..... Fuel filter could very well do it's job by filtering the elements leaving it plugged. Even more evident if it's 17 years old also.
I've seen this many times. Hope this helps!!!

you ran out of petrol when using it
the normal thing is to get off it and refuel
so with it not starting check that you have reactivated all the safety switches by
applying the brake
sat in the seat
disengaged the drive and cutters
all that you have to do when initially starting the machine
there will be no reset button for running out of fuel

1991 XJ6 (XJ40) 3.2 auto. This car has a LPG conversion fitted and is duel fuel. It starts on petrol, and then switches to gas at 2000 rpm when the switch is engaged. A few days ago now it would't start,...

i have a dealers manual somewhere and i put it somewhere safe and i cannot find it ,typical but if its converted right it should start on lpg with no problem without starting on petrol but it all depends on the type of conversion and who fitted it i suppose .I have a 4.0 litre version and what a tool its just so impressive only wish i could get a few more weddings to do in to help pay the road tax here in spain

Wont start , no fuel getting to fuel pump

Are you sure there is gas in the tank? I "fixed" more than one car that came in for a fuel pump replacement that ran out of gas. If you have gas, check the fuel pump fuse, fuel pump relay, check for power to the fuel pump. check wiring, kinked lines, clogged fuel filter. Sometimes new FI cars are hard to prime if there is air in the system. Take off the air filter and have someone squirt fuel down the throttle body while you crank the engine. If it fires, you know it's not getting fuel, but when it does fire , it may prime the pump enough to run.

I suggest probably hydrocarbons blocking the throttle system. so get the throttle bodies on your ca cleaned, Pour a bottle of fuel system cleaner into the tank and run it exclusively on Shell V-Power petrol. DD tried this and the car ran a lot better.

Try spraying starter fluid into the throttlebody...if it starts or fires, your fuel pump is bad. It will cost something around the $300-$400 mark to replace. Hope this helps!
