My car stalled for the first time ever yesterday.

I still had electronics but no juice. I could only get it to start again after I turned off the headlights and other accessories.
I was pretty low on gas at the time, but not on empty. My air filter is also in need of replacement.
I filled up the tank and checked all the fluids, and the car hasn't stalled again. Anyone have any ideas on what would cause this? Bad gas?

I'm on the 2nd fuel filter having changed the first one at 30k miles. I'm also still using the battery that came with the car. Perhaps after 4 years the stock battery is finally calling it quits?

Very tight left hand bend, second gear, and suddenly massive engine braking and then life again...
Yup, I knew I was low on fuel, but didn't know it was THAT low. Turns out there was less than four litres in the tank....
Your stall sounds like fuel line pressure drop to me !
