[DML] Bad alternator?

So I have a bit of a situation here, you see after having my DMC sit 
for 2-3 days untouched I sit down and turn to key to find that 
though it cranks the engine will not fire up. after all why should 
it: the battery guage is slightly lower than what it usually is. Now 
right now my quick fix for this is to set the battery on the slow 
charge for 2 hours or so than its ready to roll and the car fires 
right up. 

Now I know what your thinking? Bad Battery right? well the battery 
is a brand new optima battery and ive only had to recharge the thing 
becuase of my DMC about..5-6 times. As far as the alternator goes in 
this story, it is still the original Ducellier 80 watt alternator 
which I know to already be showing the signs of age and underpower 
since everytime I rub the gas every bulb on the car gets somewhat 

In anycase, I have to recharge my battery if I end up letting the 
DMC sit for such a short time. is this somehow tied into my 
alternator or is there another factor that I should be aware of in 
all this? 

Thanks DML
