Running out of fuel  - What you should know about automotive fuels - Maintenance and Specifications - Lincoln MKZ Owners Manual - Lincoln MKZ

Avoid running out of fuel because this situation may have an adverse effect on powertrain components.

If you have run out of fuel:

Х You may need to cycle the ignition from off to on several times after refueling to allow the fuel system to pump the fuel from the tank to the engine. On restarting, cranking time will take a few seconds longer than normal.

Х Normally, adding 1 gallon (3.8 liters) of fuel is enough to restart the engine. If the vehicle is out of fuel and on a steep grade, more than 1 gallon (3.8 liters) may be required.

Х The service engine soon may come on. For more indicator may come on. For more information on the service engine soon indicator, refer to Warning lights and chimes in the Instrument Cluster chapter.
