The reason is: When you completely run out of gas your gas lines are completely drained of fuel.

Sugar in the gas tank?

First off, it is a myth that sugar will ruin an engine. Sugar will not dissolve in gasoline. It may clog the fuel filter or possibly the injectors, but it will not ruin your engine. If very little sugar was poured into the tank, then just change the filter maybe a few times and drive on. If lots of sugar was added, you may need to remove the tank and flush it out, replace the filter, and flush the fuel lines.

What will happen if there is sugar in the gas tank of a car?

Nothing. Sugar is not able to dissolve in petrol fuel and thus nothing will happen to the engine. If the day keeps getting hotter and hotter and you run most of the gasoline out of your tank and then refill the tank, you may not have a problem. The Mythbusters team from Discovery Channel did a test on this and found that there was no engine troubles when sugar was added to the fuel in the fuel tanks, at least not initially, but it can clog the fuel system and ruin the fuel pump over time. As it turns out, sugar doesn't dissolve in gasoline. Pouring sand into the gas tank would have about the same effect as pouring in sugar initially. However, when things start to cool off, the sugar can get sticky. It can start gumming up the works. You may need to clean out the gas tank, replace the hoses, and clean out the fuel system and the injectors. It can be a real mess. It can get expensive.
