Hi there,

After you put in say 10 litres, cycle the ignition key 5 seconds on, 5 seconds off about 5-10 times. This should reprime the injection system.

The engine should then start up. Then drive to refill the tank as necessary.

Try to avoid running out of fuel, the high pressure pumps don't like running dry.
