Have the fuel pressure tested, running it out of fuel could have ruined the fuel pump, the pump uses the fuel as a coolant so when you run it with less than 1/4 tank you expose the fuel pump and it starts to run hotter than normal.

Running the car out of gas drags sediment into the fuel lines/system and this can clog the filter. It doesn't sound like you kept trying to start the car over-and-over after this issue, so I don't think you burned out the fuel pump. Just replace the fuel filter and if this continues to a lesser degree, have injectors checked/cleaned. This isn't a big thing.
