When it sputters how much gas can you put in it? It only has a 10 gal tank. It may be empty and the gauge isn't working.

If it's not that it may have a bad fuel pump screen or the screen may have fallen off. You can google this it's fairly common on that model civic.

If it sputters at any time when driving it could be alot of things. First things to check would be cloged catyletic converter, timing is off (mechanical or ignition), fuel filter clogged, no compression in a cylinder(s), or it may just need a tune up.
