RE: What could running out of gas do to ones car?
actually, sounds like the fuel pump it self died, but not from being run dry. mercedes tells us (us being techs) that the 1: the fuel is used to cool the pump while driving, and 2: that when a tank is run very low, and the pump is not fully submerged, than the tank is refilled, the shock from the cool fuel kills the motor. it doesnt sound too reasonable, but i have replaced many more fuel pumps in ml's with full tanks, then empty ones.
