running out of gas

my wife accidently ran out of gas on our '02 hyundai sonata.

this event won't mess anything up in the engine will it?

i know with some engines it can be bad, but not sure about ours!!!

You should be OK.

Since the pump turns on for a couple seconds to pressurize things, you should have fuel available almost immediately. At the worst you might get an extended crank before start.

Diesels on the other hand usually need to be primed.
