Sounds to me like you starved it for fuel, and then the fuel pump burnt up. The distance to empty gauges aren't very accurate, especially when you are that low on fuel. In the future, once you get down to about 100 miles to empty, put fuel in it. If you let it get that low on a regular basis, it is destructive to the pumps. Most of them are cooled by the fuel that is being pumped through them. Once you start to starve them for fuel, the pump goes out rather quickly.

Cycle the key several times before cranking. You ran it out of fuel
