i experienced something very similar, we checked everything and found 2 issues . 1 ; on chassis in front of diesel tank is a sediment filter, ours was full of jelly and silt. and also on top of diesel tank through trunk outlet and return diesel pipes partly corroded and pulling air in. swapped sender and cleared silt pot and amazed by the power difference too. hope this helps ,Reuben

The fuel filter is located below the electrics box, half way between the battery and the bulkhead on the passenger side, under the bonnet. It is very difficult to see how it all fits, but it has a central screw which holds the plastic filter housing/mounting in place. Find this screw (which is a small self tapper) and be prepared to loose it, or use a magnetic screw driver. Then lift the plastic housing up and away, (towards the engine) be ready with loads of rags to catch the diesel fuel when you disconnect the pipes. There is an earth wire attached to the housing also. (anti interference, I think) It is quite a fiddle getting it back again, as it has two locating lugs on the back of the plastic housing/mounting.
