I have an xB and this happened to me. It was a horrible pain to troubleshoot, but I found the problem. It ended up being a loose EFI fuse in the engine fusebox. The xB fuse holder has a solid piece of metal with a V notch on one side, and two metal tabs on the other. The tabs must have been too far apart, when the fuse lost electrical contact it shut down the fuel injectors and the engine would die, leaving me stranded a few times. It would wierdly start up later without symptoms.
To see if this is the problem, turn on the engine. Open the engine fuse panel. Put your finger on each fuse and wiggle it. If your engine dies, that's the loose fuse. You dhould not get shocked, it's 12V DC, the fuses should have plastic on the top of them, and your body has a high internal resistance. Just don't do it barefoot in a pullde. To fix it use a small nail or other device and bend the metal tabs on the fuse holder closer to one another. I haven't had a problem since. Good luck.
