Angry I need help, I really screwed up

I ran my truck out of diesel and need help getting herback on the road. I know it was stupid but I thought I could make it back to the station. I had a horrible weekend which was only capped off by my stupidity.

Thanks for helping me out.

03 VW New Beetle 1.9L Turbo Diesel (My wifes car, seriously! but hey at least its a diesel)
:beer3:

If you were keeping track thats Three turbos, and 12.2 Liters! :burnout

Fill it up with diesel and crank on it. Remove the fuel filter lid and fill that with diesel too.
Don't crank more than 30 seconds at a time and let the starter cool a bit between tryes. It should work the air out eventually.

Thanks guys. Do I have to fill her all the way up? Because I am far from the station and only have two 1 gallon containers.

Not that big O deal, do like Clay says and youll be fine. I'm notoriuos for trying to get as many miles as I can from a fill up, one thing, take the lid off the fuel filter and fill that up first, it should bust over by your second try.

no a couple of gallons should do it. I might try to put at least 5 gallons in it. If you cycle the key a couple of times, you won't have to remove the lid it will fill itself.

Keep cycling it...turn the key on, let the fuel system pressurize, wait, turn the key off and do it again and then crank it. Make sure you have put enough fuel in the tank....at least 5 gallons i would say. There is air in the system and it will work out. Crank the starter for several seconds and let off and let it rest and repeat.
