Did you try cycling the key to the run position(just dash lights, NOT crank) and wait for the fuel pump hum (about 3 seconds) and do it again, then give a SHORT crank. Then repeat the process, this will let the pump refill and pressurize the fuel lines to be able to start.
Other than that, you could try a short spray of starting fluid into the air intake.

Did you do it more than 1 cycle as your reply seems to indicate? Having run out of fuel, it takes a few times as I posted before trying to crank it over to start. There is a lot of fuel line to fill from the tank to the motor. If I'm not mistaken, there is a Schrader valve (test port) on the injector rail, you could take the stem cap off and press the valve(just like a tire valve stem) and see if any fuel sprays out. IF none does, then the pump has not moved enough fuel thru the lines yet.

It would be helpful to know what size motor is in the van. And ANY other background performance "issues" it may have been having before this "run out of gas" situation happened. Has the CEL on the dash been on? IF you are getting fuel, then you must not be getting spark.
Did you try a small shot of starting fluid into the intake and see if it would fire off on that, as I initially posted?
