    'My car/van/truck/lorry has run out of petrol/gas/diesel.'

    Start every sentence with a capital letter and end it with the appropriate punctuation mark.

    Note the correct spelling of 'grammar'.

    Re: grammar

    You could say:

    I have run out of gas.

    Depending on the situation, people will readily understand that you are talking about your car and not yourself.
