Re: Run out of Gas and after I refill It wouldnt start
Check the fuel pump if it is not engaging it could have picked up some dirt and you might want to also check the fuel filter for dirt and you could also remove the air filter try pouring just a few drops of gas into the carborater and if it starts and shuts back off it isnt getting any fuel

its not the gas its the price of the gas that seems like bad mileage go to gas station and fill till gas pump clicks off at slow fill record mileage and gallons to fill/road test for 25 miles go back to same gas station same side of gas pump and refill at slow fill and record miles and gallons to refill this will give you best practice for fuel mileages/PS drive in cityor highway not both causes difference in gas mileage
will try to help. did it run out of gas and you kept cranking it until the batterys now dead? if so, try this, add at least three gallons of fuel to the tank. then apply booster cables to it from another vehicle. allow 10 minutes of boosting,do not attempt to start during boost for10min. after 10minutes turn your key to on position,not start, just on for 10seconds,do this at least 5times. after the 5th time attempt to start engine. if starts,disconnect the booster cables immeadiatlly. ley car run for at least 10 minutes or drive it to gas station for more fuel.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com
Put an empty gas can in your car (2 gallon or more).
Next time you are just on E,
1) stop by a gas station and fill up the gas can (not your car).
2) Record your milage.
3) Drive around until you run out of gas.
4) record your milage again and calculate distance driven.
5) write the number somewhere in your car for future reference.
6) Fill up your car from the gas can (carefully).
Take the empty can out of your car as soon as possible.
Since the Uplanders have the long (front to back) skinny gas tank, with the outlet to the rear; if you run out of gas with the front/nose inclined lower than the rear, then it can take upwards of 5 to 8 gallons to get it started again. It was written up in a GM TSB. Two gallons won't start it. When the gage reads less than 1/2, it's not a good idea to park with the front lower than the rear...unless you carry a full 5 gal. refill. Thank you GM engineering.
this sound like a faulty float. a float is a device inside your gas tank which tells you how much gas you have and does go out once in a wile and give wrong readings you may have more than it says. the easy way to tell is check how much gas you rely have or if you cant then just run it till your out of gas or close to it then fill up if it takes more to fill up its your float
