If you believe that you have a restriction in your fuel line, I can think of a couple of possible remedies. It is possible that your fuel filter is simply clogged and could benefit from a replacement. This happens over time when many gallons of fuel have been ran through it. It is also possible that you have a restriction in the actual line. If this is the case, unfortunately the line would require replacement in order to resolve this issue. Consider YourMechanic for your fuel filter as a certified professional can come to your home or office to replace your fuel filter for you.

Hello - if you believe there is "trash" in the fuel system, I would do a "back-to-front" cleaning. Make sure the tank is flushed of debris and old gas, replace the fuel filter, flush fuel lines to the carb/injection. Clean or rebuild the carb or fuel injectors. Flush any return lines. Unless this repair is approached in a systematic fashion, you won’t really know where the problem is until you have clean fuel, consistently, at the right pressure. I would recommend a fuel system inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
