if it wasnt run on petrol for some time then chances are your injectors may be blocked.

at a guess you may have moved the junk in tank and clogged the filter,replace the filter again--check flow on the injectors--1

on the fuel rail theres like a tyre valve if u press on that it will squirt a heap of fuel higher than the bonnet of the car so i would think its gettin enough fuel.

fuel pressure and fuel volume are two totally different things. Pressure will build up given time, but it wont last if the volume isnt there
