Re: ron p Sei S won't start after running out of fuel

Welcome.

The fuel cut off is on the front bulkhead behind the centre of the dash, although I doubt its that.

Can you hear the pump try and prime when the ignition is first turned to position one.

I would guess that the pick up or filter is/are blocked.

Cheers
