Glad it was just the battery. I hate those characteristics of bad batteries - they can go with no warning at all, AND voltage can measure fine until it is under load. It was very confusing to me when I first started troubleshooting problems like these.
Last summer we were towing a camper from FL to WV - stopped at a rest area after towing most of the way home. Went to start it up and had nothing... we had been gone for two weeks, and the truck had started fine the whole time. Got a jump and made it home, replaced the 8 year old ACDelco battery (yes I got my money's worth out of it).
Glad you are burning fuel again.
