Yes,probably picked up some dirt out of the tank when you ran it dry.

Would say that you have got some trash in the carb or tank. Do you have a inline fuel filter on it?

I agree with them, when it ran out it pulled some gunk into the carb. Clean the carb, flush out the tank good and replace any fuel filters. If you don't have a filter put one in.

As Brian said, it's good to use a inline fuel filter and maybe clean the gas tank, because after some time you'll find (condensed) water at the ground that will corrode the inner tank.

EDIT: Seems you were a little bit faster, Ryan :beerchug:

While you are cleaning the carb I would put a fuel filter in the fuel line.
