Due to having to fly at 3000 ft AGL instead of 10500 ft AGL our aircraft had used more fuel than we had planned. We also had to deviate from course due to WX. We left osh, but had to wait for ATC clearance and had the engine running for 35 mins before we were able to take off. These factors caused us to use all fuel on board. Approximately 5 seconds after turning to base the engine died. I had to shorten base and perform a power off landing. I was approximately 30 degrees off of centerline on right side of runway and touched down about 50 ft short of the runway on the grass. Landing was safe and called for a tow to the FBO. I should have kept better track of the time the engine was running and landed at another airport prior to where we did land. I should have realized that the factors listed above would reduce my range. I should have also set up for a power off landing and shortened my downwind.

Title: C182 PLT HAS FUEL STARVATION AND LANDS SHORT OF THE RWY AT ZZZ.
Narrative: DUE TO HAVING TO FLY AT 3000 FT AGL INSTEAD OF 10500 FT AGL OUR ACFT HAD USED MORE FUEL THAN WE HAD PLANNED. WE ALSO HAD TO DEVIATE FROM COURSE DUE TO WX. WE LEFT OSH, BUT HAD TO WAIT FOR ATC CLRNC AND HAD THE ENG RUNNING FOR 35 MINS BEFORE WE WERE ABLE TO TAKE OFF. THESE FACTORS CAUSED US TO USE ALL FUEL ON BOARD. APPROX 5 SECONDS AFTER TURNING TO BASE THE ENG DIED. I HAD TO SHORTEN BASE AND PERFORM A PWR OFF LNDG. I WAS APPROX 30 DEGS OFF OF CTRLINE ON R SIDE OF RWY AND TOUCHED DOWN ABOUT 50 FT SHORT OF THE RWY ON THE GRASS. LNDG WAS SAFE AND CALLED FOR A TOW TO THE FBO. I SHOULD HAVE KEPT BETTER TRACK OF THE TIME THE ENG WAS RUNNING AND LANDED AT ANOTHER ARPT PRIOR TO WHERE WE DID LAND. I SHOULD HAVE REALIZED THAT THE FACTORS LISTED ABOVE WOULD REDUCE MY RANGE. I SHOULD HAVE ALSO SET UP FOR A PWR OFF LNDG AND SHORTENED MY DOWNWIND.
