Running out of petrol can cause a few problems 1. Garbage in the tank may have plugged your fuel filter 2. You may have an airlock in the injection rail, remove bleeder cap and depress. 3. You may have ruined your fuel pump running it without fuel

There is not a air lock as I have already depressed and fuel came out and do you think if I took the injectors out a blew them that would solve it?

No, do you have any way to check the fuel pressure? Let's make sure it is the fuel problem, but a little ether and spry it onto the intake if you want Start when we know for sure ifs fuel.

What is ether? Is it like an easy start spray? Do you think the head gasket could be gone because when it was running it did burn alot of oil?

I don't have any manuals on the specific vehicle, but we can try some preliminary checks, when you turn the key on can you hear the fuel pump activate? Pull a spark plug wire make sure you grounded it and check it for spark while someone is cranking it.
