Question about running out of fuel.
My Dad was out today with less fuel than he thought and was trying to make it to the station when he ran out of fuel.
After getting a whole bunch of diesel fuel and spending the time to prime it, he got the truck running and after a few minutes he said the truck smoothed out and seemed to be running normal.
What I'd like to know is, I've read where people replace the fuel filter when this happens, but I know the filter in this truck was just replaced and may have 500 miles on it.
Are there any specific "after" steps to take once getting the truck running again after running one empty such as diesel fuel treatment, new filter, etc?
