Fuel starvation?

Fuel starvation?

Last night while taking off and maybe 60 feet AGL I lost engine power requiring me to make an off field landing off the end of the runway.  The fuel had no water in it, the run-up was perfect and the plane is flown weekly. The humidity was too low to make carb ice likely.  It has been suggested that it is likely that the fuel selector was slightly out of the "both" indent.  Anybody want to weigh in?
Thank you
Ron

Re: Fuel starvation?

I should mention this is a 1968 172I.  The engine never did quit and two subsequent run-ups after the incident were normal...
Thanks

Re: Fuel starvation?

Probably the selector, but have you checked the fuel filter too?
