Never fun running a diesel out of fuel. But if you run into that scenario again, you can crack an injector line or 2 open slightly, crank a bit to get the air out and get the pump reprimed, tighten the injector lines back up and the truck should fire up. Worst case might have to repeat. Granted filling the filter may be easier depending on the truck...
