We'd need much more info than you've given here to start coming up with possible solutions.
When you say ".......driving to work engine cuts out doing 40mph......" do you mean it's just done it the once & won't re-start or it always cuts out when you're doing 40mph?
Have you had any work done recently ?
Has the van been serviced regularly ?

I take it the engine light is not illuminated ?, but nonetheless it would make sense to get a code reader plugged in to see if there's any faults logged as not all faults illuminate the fault light.
You can buy them quite cheap, VCDS is around £250 or there the dealers who will probably charge around an hours rate, which could be £90 to plug their reader in.
