"miss" when low on fuel.

I like all the good ideas and help available here. Have a question tho. My 06 F250 with 6.0l has the low fuel message, But 2 times now I have been far enough from fuel I wasn't sure I'd make it. The engine did cut out, like air in line, fuel pump stopped or similar sound. Only a second at a time..every couple minutes.IS this going to hurt something? My first thought was considering the pressure in fuel system I din't need that on the injectors. After fueling up...no trouble. OTHER than the obvious "keep the top half full" I'd welcome all ideas.
