help please cutting out

Hi all got a (hopefully) small problem. Driving home from work last night the car started to bog down and after a few yards the revs dropped and it cut out. It wouldnt start for maybe 10 minutes then another few miles down the road it happened again. This continued until i got home happening maybe 5 or 6 times. Has anyone else had this happen to them? I wont deny that i sometimes let the fuel reach nearly empty so my first thought was fuel filter. But speaking toa friend he says its probably the maf. Anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks

i'd say its the 02 sensor,just to see if it is,take it to your nearest mot station and get it put on the tester...failing that it could be the maf or the coolant temp sensor..
