Check engine indicator light is on. I thought I was out of fuel as was running on fumes. When I added more fuel the next day it ran fine for 15 mins then the same thing happened.

    You need to get the car's stored code first. Diagnose from there. Could be anything from fuel filter, fuel pump, vacuum leaks, never been tuned up, etc...
