Re: total loss of power/fuel -help desperately needed

this may be a VERY stupid question but surely if it loses power whilst im driving this suggests a fuel problem and not the battery
I wasnt operating anything electrical while I was driving so surely the battery isnt in use then???

Re: total loss of power/fuel -help desperately needed

battery should be fine - its newish
Also RAC guy checked terminals/connections and confirmed it was charging and retaining charge
If electrical fault would it just cut out as im driving along the dual carraige way??
