Based on your description, it sounds like you may have a clogged fuel filter or a weak fuel pump. I would recommend having your fuel pressure tested at the fuel filter and the fuel rail. If the fuel pressure is low at the fuel filter, the pump is weak. If the fuel pressure is low at the rail, but not low at the filter, the filter is clogged. Consider YourMechanic as fuel filters and fuel pumps can be replaced at your home of office.
