My guess is that you were quite low on fuel and starved the engine, resulting in serious misfires, which caused the flashing CEL as the ECU shut them down. (You may also have a dirty fuel filter that impeded the flow near the end of the tank, so perhaps check/change that.)
Assuming my guess is correct, fueling up resolved the immediate issue (particularly since it is now running okay) and you now have a steady, not flashing, CEL. So drive normally for a few days and you should see the CEL go out on it's own. If not then I would get the codes read.
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)
