Started my car this morning for about 5 min. Then it started to sputter like it was running out of gas. Now all it does is turn over but want start. All I have tried is putting more gas in it.

So are you getting fuel to the injectors? If you would turn the key on and listen for the fuel pump you should hear it hum for about 3 seconds, let me know if you hear it. Sounds like you may have had a fuel pump go bad. If you know where the shrader vavle is on the injection rail then turn the key on then back off and slowly press the valve down with a small screwdrive and see if fuel comes out of it, be carefull not to look over it as it should come out with 40psi or more. Let me know what you find and we will go from there ok.
