I ran my 01 diesel excursion out of diesel...... now not running

I was heading down the road and the fuel light came on then about 5 min. later it was spitting and spudering, so I pulled off the road. It never acually died, but was running really rough. I put 5 gallons of diesel in it. Now it will start, but runs really rough and will not rev up at all. I cracked the fuel bowl drain under the fuel filter housing and trided to prime it a little. Alot of diesel was in the fuel bowl. I dont know what else to try. I got a tow back to my house but I need my truck for work Monday morning. I saw something about putting air pressure in the tank?? Any help welcomed as this truck is new to me. Thanks in advance

just let it idle. every 15 or so minutes go out and try to drive it until it clears up. if you cracked the fuel bowl and it had diesel in it then you just have to let it work the air out of the system

Fill up the tank... More then likely you may have sucked a bunch of crap into the mixing screens and they could be plugged. But before going that far I would get at least 15 gallons in the tank.

What moto said. These trucks are not like your typical old school P-pumped type diesels where you have to crack the injectors and prime them.
