Can't start my Montero! Help!!!

My '89 Mis. Montero, recently ran out of fuel. I added a gallon then proceeded to start it, it wouldn't start, finally the battery died, the tow truck picked it up and towed it to my home. I charged the battery and it still wouldn't turn over. Mean while I noticed drip of fuel from various spots in the exhaust system. I manually turned the crank thinking I was on a flat spot, sure enough the motor turned over and over and over with no luck of it starting. It seems there's quite a bit of fuel it the exhaust system. Can any one please help me diagnose this problem, hopefully it's not to bad!
Thanks, Jon

If you ran it out of fuel, there's a good chance you wiped out the fuel pump if it's an intank unit (most FI vehicles are).

Running a vehicle out of fuel is bad business.

Start with the links and posts in my signature file (most notably "The Basics" first below.
