Modern vehicles should never be allowed to run out of gas... EVER. The electric fuel pump is cooled by gasoline (believe it or not), and can overheat and fail if the tank is allowed to run dry. Also, the "fuel sock" (which is the fuel pickup strainer in the tank) can become clogged with solids and other debris from the tank. The fuel filter can clog with this debris also.

You'll need to have the fuel system checked.

You may have had some gunk in the tank. When you ran out it could have sucked up all those particles, plugging your filters; possibly even the sock over the fuel pump in the tank. Start by changing the fuel filter that is in-line on the underside of the vehicle.

    Ran out of gas now is running rough i replaced the fuel fillter but is still running rough


    you will have to clean the fuel injectors and check fuel pressure, maybe the pump is going bad, dont let the fuel pump run without gas, some way gassoline works on the pump as cooling too, and if running dry then it will **** air and burn the pump,
