If it is the original battery it probably IS the battery. Even with a good meter they can fool you.

Battery is sufficiently charged, and there's no other symptoms of a weak battery. Just turns over and over, never quite firing well enough to start. Plugged fuel filter? Some other non-code problem?
Nothing like this has happened previously, always started right up as expected. Car has 90000 miles.
