it does almost sound like a alt. problem, but it seems u ruled that out.....
did u happen to test it in the car or did u have it tested somewhere?
do the lights dim when u start the car....try starting w/headlights on....
but u said u parked it uphill and it got lumpy....... used
That makes me think u may have sediment build up in ur gas tank, and it clogged up ur fuel filter...maybe even the pump too. over time, tanks start to deteriorate and if they r not cleaned, can suck all the gunk on the bottom into the filter/pump. when u park on a hill, the gas flows to the back and ur the pump will suck up a mouthful of the sediment that clogs it up. it makes it very lumpy and stalls out like u said.
my guess. fuel filter/pump
cause. they r old, and gas tank is dirty.
