Get your hands on a Fuel pressure guage, connect it see what you have! Take it with you and when you to where you think it wont start after dying connect it again, see what you get.

Check for spark! Take a timing light with you, see if it flashes!!!!


Keep us informed

the problem with those things is when they go out they work when they are cool so you will have spark and everything will be fine until the engine gets hot
