HelloThis could be a lack of fuel pressure from the electrical pump at the tank.If the connections to this are corroded or damaged then the pump could stop atany time or could not be running at full speed. Check that its relay switchesin and out and the relay contacts are clean and bright – replace the relay ifin any doubt and do the same for the fuse,Ideally measure the pressure at the inlet to the main engine fuel pump and ifthis is low check the pump as described and also consider changing the fuelfilter as if this partially blocked this too will reduce pressure.
