What makes you certain its fuel related.? Have you changed something recently related to the fuel system? Standard fuel reg still fitted.?

Have you had the EML show its pretty face? If so, have you checked your fault codes.?

An air leak in the induction can be the cause of similar symptoms, not to mention a poor earth/connection somewhere in the engine bay.

Well me mate had a problem about the same as yours where fuel wasnt getting throw it turned out to be a kinked pipe that comes from the fuel tank to the pump which was a bit of a mare as the only way you can find out is to drop the tank as the pipe is on the top of it hope this helps

Have you recently removed the fuel pipes on the bulk head.? If so, make sure you have replaced them the right way round.

i would think that the pipe from the tank to the pump could be split & drawing air.
just checked the forum, wish i hadv before i took my car apart but yer, had the fuel tank off twice, the pipe that goes from the tank to the pump was well past its sell by date, all cushty now, car runs sweet as, thnx 2 every1 anyways.
