um the obvious petrol ? if you have filled up did you give it time to run to the tank ? can take 3-5 mins also if you let her run dry there's lots of small bits of rubbish and particulates at the bottom of the tank which will have made its way to the engine some people say this is bad as it can damage fuel filter , sparks etc so check all the ignition parts

also if you have a diesel ??? it could be the diesel pump a diesel pump can't get the diesel from the tank to the engine if the lines are empty. you'll need to have them pulled vaccuum before it'll work again

or she might just need a few turns to get the fuel in or a bump to get going , i had a vectra run out and it took me about 15 mins to get going again which included a few starts just dont flood it give it time and let us know how you get on
