Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I am a licensed diagnostic and repair technician, I look forward to working with you.
This may sound like a very obvious question, but starting with the basics what is the fuel level in the car? the reason i ask is that when the fuel is down to approx 100 miles remaining if its parked a certain way the fuel can move away from the pickup pipe and prevent starting so I like to rule this out first.
The tank is 60% full
Ok great so that rules that out. I suspect there is a fault somewhere on the management or fuels supply system, this may be a case of blocked fuel filter or another minor issue such as a sensor etc.. Its difficult to say due to the amount of possible causes of non starting. Ideally the next step is to have the car scanned using a diagnostic scanner to look for any faults on the engine management system. Any fault codes here will help pinpoint the problem such as low fuel pressure etc..If possible, the battery needs to be fully charged up and a diagnostic scan carried out before going any further, any garage or mobile mechanic should be able to do this for you and usually charge around £40
