    Usually we would say "I am out of gas/petrol" OR "I have run out of gas/petrol".

    So generally can't we use it as a paasive verb?

    Not as asked. 'Run out' is a cricket term.
    You could say 'I ran out of gas' which is correct, and 'I was out of gas' for the past and 'I will run out of gas if we do not find a garage soon' but normally just the simple statements given by Anglika.
