I have found that many times when the fuel tank is empty, the pump sucks up dirt and it either ruins the pump or pluggs the fuel filter.
What you need to do is check fuel pump pressure to the fuel rail. Here is both a how to video and step by step instructions for checking it. Check it out and let me know what you find. Also, you will need a gauge. They sell them on the site here or many parts stores will lend or rent them. If you have to rent one, you may be better off purchasing one so you have it for the future.
Regardless, let me know what you find as far as pressure, the exact size of the engine you have and then I can check what the pressure should be to determine if you are wthin spec.
