Question about 2005 Honda Civic
I was very low on gas, then put a 1.5 gallons in to get me to a another gas station where the gas was cheaper. On the way it cut off. I put more gas in and it still won't start.
False economy that.....
the pump is fuel cooled and Lubricated,
running it dry, wrecks the pump. (at the least lost the prime)
this car is no like an old carb car ,where this is ok.
if lucky key on and off 10 times, and hear the pump, it you hear it run.
it may prime. some cars 1/2 the pump is dead until cranked.
so easy to drain a battery priming the pump.

If the car has over 100,000 miles on it, you may need to replace the distributer. I don't think the bad gas caused this issue I think it may just be a coincdence. But if you already changed the plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotor, I would definetly check the distributor.

I had a similar issue, but I think it's because I left the tailgate door open slightly and the built-in light killed my battery. I jumped my battery, but I wasn't able to start my car again and this time the door was closed properly. I was told by Honda that the batteries only last for about 2-3 years. I have since replaced the battery and no more issues.

Your problem is the breather on the tank
Its a pipe fitted to the tank that lets the air out when you put fuel in. and it sounds like its blocked up or has a kink in it
Find it ,clean it, and your ok to fill up.

Look in the relay box under your hood and find the fuel pump relay. Look for another relay with the same amperage rating and switch them, then try to start the engine. f that does nothing, look for a way to loosen the timing belt cover so you can visually inspect the timing belt for wear damage, tension or failure. If it all looks good, then I would change the fuel filter and while you have the fuel lines disconnected, insert them into an empty plastic bottle mouth and secure them so they won't come out. Then try cranking the engine to see if fuel sprays into the bottle and if it does, does it seem to have good pressure. If it has low or no pressure you probably have a bad fuel pump.

There is about a gallon additional capacity in the filter, hoses, filler tube, etc.
But I have never seen anyone let it get low enough intentionally to ever notice. Don't wait for the light to come on. That is not very accurate, and you could easily find yourself stranded out of gas.
