It could be that you have picked up a batch of dirty fuel, or there is some dirt or rust inside the tank, that has clogged the fuel filter that is in the engine bay. Try replacing this filter first. If that only improves things slightly, it could also be that the dirt / rust in the fuel tank has clogged the gauze input filter that is part of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.
To clean the tank filter, you will need to remove the pump assembly from the tank. Access to it is usually through a removable plate in the floor in the rear of the vehicle. Disconnect the wiring plug and the fuel hoses, noting which hose goes to which pipe and undo the screws holding the unit in the top of the tank. You may have to juggle it a bit to get it out. Once you have the pump assembly out, allow the gauze filter to dry. You can assess the amount of clogging by shining a torch through the gauze and see how much light comes through. Clean it by brushing with an old tooth brush and blowing clean with compressed air. If there is a lot of dirt/rust in the tank, try draining it. Replacing is the reverse procedure. You may have to repeat the above cleaning process in a few months if the symptoms appear again.
