Post Palio 1.2 EL 2001

Hi

I recently acquired a Palio from the coast (I stay in Pretoria RSA). From the beginning I could only put in about 25L of fuel.
While driving today the car started to cut out like it was fuel starvation. No warning lights went on. Could it just be dirt or rust in the tank and clogged fuel lines or the fuel pump or relay?
How can I check if the pump has enough pressure and pumps the correct volume?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Martin

Welcome at FF.
Check the fuelfilter under the car, next to the fueltank.
You should hear the fuelpump "buzzing" after turning the ignition key, before starting the engine.
