Sounds like you should looking at the intank pump performance (supply test), or the rail pressure regulator.

If you have a Holden dealer nearby, I would refer the owner to the Holden dealer.

I have seen many faults like this on Cruze, Captiva, and they are too complex for anyone outside of the dealer network.

Hope this helps you.
