I had a Cherokee with 180k miles on it that was very hard to start. I ran dry as I pulled into my driveway. That finished off the pump but being out of gas made it easier to drop the tank to replace the pump. I also had a bent rail and leaky injector which added up to low fuel pressure. That was why it was hard to start. Worked out pretty good for me except for the $$$ I had to spend on parts.
My 1st VW diesel ran out right in front of a gas station on our way home from a long distance trip to specialist for my oldest son. I kept thinking man this thing is getting great mileage the needle hasn't moved off of 1/4 tank in forever. I was at 596 miles on the trip odometer. I think the level indicator got tweaked during a pump replacement by PO.
