I have a 2002 Mondeo, 108 Zuratec. I made the dreaded mistake of running out of petrol. I filled out with a can of petrol (around £5) and the engine is just turning over and over. Doesn't sound like starting.

I have tried again this morning and it turned over for a while, to no avail, but now won't turn over and makes a clicking sound (the dash lights also flicker). So am assuming I have drained the battery.

Any ideas at all. Have I probably sucked up all the rubbish from the bottom of the tank?

Any suggestion would be appreciated
