Hi there. The issue may be that when the vehicle was filled up, there may have been trash in the gas tank and it may have been stirred up into the fuel system which may have clogged up the fuel injectors. I suggest putting in a fuel injection cleaner to help clean out any trash buildup in the fuel system and in the fuel injectors.
For the charging system issue, check all of the wire connections from the alternator to the fuse box and check the battery cables. If the alternator is not charging the battery, then the alternator would need checked for a load and voltage operation. If the alternator fails the test, then I suggest replacing the alternator. If the alternator passes the test, then there is a break in the wiring from the alternator to the battery.
