I'm not a mechanic but I have ran out of fuel and had an open system for repairs many times. If there is a pump present somewhere on the fuel system. start with that. There may be a need to vent from a valve in the line to help prime, Just study the lines and where they are going. If all this falls just get in and try to start the vehicle. The things to keep in mind are the fuel pump; has to fill the filter again and purge air(this takes time). Also the starter; should be respected enough to give it a break now and again. Bad starter = $80.00. It will seem to take for ever, try depressing the accelarator after you feel the fuel bowls are full. She may chug and buck but she'll clear her throat and exentually smooth out.

No fuel, dead battery, plugged fuel or air filter, no oil & seized the engine, or many other things. If it cranks over I would guess it is the fuel system. Drain the gas and put diesel in, replace the fuel filter, bleed the lines and it should work.
