I have. I usually do when going on a long trip to maximize range. The prop will windmill and engine will surge back to life within a few seconds of switching to a tank with fuel. I recommend caution in doing so though unless you have options to land in case you happen to have a selector or feed issue(blocked vent, etc) after switching. The fuel pressure surging I mentioned above starts to happen about a minute before you run the tank dry unless you're at an unusual pitch angle at the time. So unless I happen to miss it, that's when I try to switch over now.
