The fuel pump in the petrol tank has a sock that acts as a coarse
filter. This sock gets clogged with muck causing the car to starve of
fuel intermittently and lead to the stalling as you've described. If
you pour in some injector cleaner (contains detergents) or methylated
spirits it may just fix the problem. Condensation (water) in the fuel
creates a slimy goop that clogs filters. It worked for me and my 1992
Daihatsu Charade, and have heard that other cars with similar symptoms
have been cured in the same way, usually after expensive repairs have
already proved unsuccessful . A cheap solution really! Try this first.
