Michael Keane was the pivotal figure at both ends as the Clarets came from behind to stop the rot away from home and climb another place up the Premier League table.
Burnley had lost seven times in a row on the road since securing their only previous point away from Turf Moor at Manchester United in October.
But Sean Dyche's men doubled that tally as they showed great character to hit back and earn a deserved draw which lifted them to 11th-place - still 10 points clear of the relegation places - as they saw out stoppage time with 10 men following the late dismissal of Ashley Barnes.
Hull's revival under Marco Silva looked as though it might be about to continue when Keane was penalised for handball and Tom Huddlestone made it 1-0 from the penalty spot with just 18 minutes to go.
But the Clarets' defender responded superbly to that setback to score the equaliser himself just four minutes later with a top-class finish to keep Burnley heading in the right direction and the Tigers in the bottom three.
The KCOM Stadium had been a happy hunting ground for the Clarets with wins there in each of their last two Premier League campaigns.
A return to Humberside also meant Robbie Brady and George Boyd facing their former club and the ex-Hull pair were both prominent in a positive start for the Clarets.
Boyd tested Eldin Jakupovic with a low drive early on, which the City keeper saved low down to his left.
And the quality in Brady's left foot was evident as he supplied two dangerous balls into the penalty area which had the home defence at full stretch.
Boyd then set up Brady for a shot the winger sliced wide but Dyche's men couldn't force the breakthrough and Hull, having lost just one of their previous 10 home games, began to pose a threat as they grew into the contest.
Dieumerci Mbokani headed wide under pressure from the excellent Matt Lowton and after the big striker had again caused problems, former Burnley transfer target Kamil Grosicki lifted an attempted lob too high and over the target.
Burnley responded with Ben Mee meeting another accurately delivered Brady free-kick with a powerful header which Jakupovic palmed away with the help of the crossbar.
But Hull were presented with a set-piece of their own five minutes before the break following a pull by Ashley Westwood on Huddlestone, which saw former Rennes winger Grosicki fire a fierce 30-yarder just over the Burnley bar as the stalemate continued, Ahmed Elmohamady heading wide the last chance of the half from another Grosicki cross in stoppage time.
Tom Heaton had not actually been tested in the Clarets' goal and that was the case again three minutes into the second half when Mbokani wasted another decent heading opportunity.

I think a point against a team in the bottom three is quite acceptable as we are still keeping that ten point gap between us..
Maybe their penalty should have been a foul on Keane,but he goes down to the other end and scores a very good goals indeed yo atone for his handball..Putting another million on his price tag..
I could be wrong but I think two yellows only gets a one match ban. His elbows are becoming a problem though, and the refs are looking for it now. He'll have to sort it somehow, he's had a fairly quiet ride so far, but every time he raises them from now on he's in the book.
2 things, outstanding performance by our 12th man and thank the gods Hull are as woeful in front of goal as we are. They actually fed Gray one or two balls during this game that were of some use to his style of play, more of the same and he may resume his raison d'etre. Only saying what I see. Mee makes some players around him better than they would be if he were not there.As for Brady he still is very very early days in coming up to speed both in our group and the prem.Barnes mouth got him sent off as much as the elbow.If he had started against Lincoln there is a fair chance we would still be in the cup.Finally, we seemed to have less hesitation in some of our moves forward at times in this game, about bl"""y time.
Watched the first half on the web, before 'buffering' issues made it unwatchable so didn't get to see the 'exciting' second half. Barnes is aggressive, belligerent, mouthy but works hard. He always looks like he is @#$%& off the officials, and pays the price for that. Kevin Davies in his prime at Bolton, got away with a lot more than he should have done by just trying to connect with the refs. Barnes is hallway to a yellow card before the kick off.
Watched the Spurs v Stoke game Sunday and saw a tackle by Glen Whelan very similar to Hendricks tackle v Watford......only a yellow for the Stoke man. Inconsistencies or different interpretations of the rules are annoying, but give us all something to talk about! Spurs looked very good going forward.
