    When a vehicle runs out of gas it takes a lot of engine cranking to get the fuel back into the fuel lines. Sometimes it can wear the battery down just trying to get it started. If you have a fuel injected vehicle, it can take a while to get the fuel into the injectors.

    There's not many carb vehicles anymore. All the newer cars are fuel injected.

    I am still in love with the cars of old...50s to late 70s...maybe to 82...too bad we have a fuel crisis.. ;(

    We do not have a fuel crisis. That is the same lie fed to you as our government feeds to us. It's all about the money and keeping the cost of fuel high.

    That may be...but I still want the ole gas guzzler cars...they were well thought out...I mean...my '69 eldorado was so roomy it had a freaking dance floor!! You can't dance in the back of a hyundai!! ;D (p.s. no wonder I,m so skinny...eating all that b.s. darn!)

    right.the fuel crisis is a lie. Cars can run on natural gas , hydrogen, peanut oil,electriciy , and a host of other types of fuel.

    Drip some gas into the carburetor......

    or into the fuel line.

    Put more fuel in it! A car will not start with no gas!

    sounds like the fuel line pump doesn't work
