- broken wires/spark plugs/fuel filter(s) - gas in gas tank?


No. It's typical for a 4yr old Subaru battery, as parasitic drains are more common than in generations past. Yes, assuming you have fuel, it's most probably the battery...very UNLIKELY to be all 4 ignition wires broken at once nor a non- existent fuel filter!
