I have experienced this problem. When the motor is not getting petrol, remove the petrol cap, if you hear a rush of air there is a vacuum in the tank preventing the petrol getting to the carb. Possibly due to a blocked breather pipe on the tank. I fixed it by drilling a small 1,5 mm hole in the centre of the INNER part only of the petrol cap. This is too small to allow petrol to escape.

If a petrol engine then their is a gauze filter inside the fuel tank on the pick up pipe ,Unless you have been filling with fuel from cans you should never need to change a fuel filter ,diesel yes but petrol cars i have never changed a fuel filter on a modern car with a fibre glass tank ,the old metal tanks then yes but on modern cars ---?= never had a problem
There is likely an issue with the vent control side of the EVAP system. I am also willing to bet the check engine light has been on since this problem started? This is a complicated system and i would recommend having a shop (either the dealer or an independent shop that you have experience with) take a look at this.
The problem is the clutch and the engine flywheel are heat damaged, this is called clutch "chatter" You must have the entire clutch replaced and the flywheel machined smooth again. The damage is caused by excessive slipping of the clutch on take off. Release the clutch asap when you start off, do not slip it for long periods this turns it nearly read hot.
on these cars there is no other way to open the fuel door except with the lever on the floor on the drivers side.if you really need gas in a hurry,get a butter knife or something flat that can squeeze through the side of the fuel door and try to push the pin that holds the door closed.it worked for me a few times in the past when my lever broke.hope this info helps.take care and good luck, manny
