If it is on too steep of a driveway the fuel may not be getting picked up by the in tank fuel pump, and that can very quickly ruin the pump, I suggest that you carefully coast it down to a level area and cycle the key a few times and try too hear if the fuel pump is running, if it is then try to start it.
