My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would ask to see if you still need help with this.

Will the vehicle run and operate properly after the filter has been replaced each time?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.

once the engine reaches operating temp and you have done about 30 klms it gives the impression that it is starting to starve for fuel , no matter how far the peddle goes down it will only go about 60 to 80 klms an hour , if towing even worse. once you stop for 10 mins it goes ok for awhile but starts to deteriate soon after.

giday pete , it really made no difference. this is my second message


O.k.,it may be possible the fuel tank is vapor locking to where it isn't venting properly.When this acts up again like this here try loosening the gas cap and see it is starts and runs properly then.If it does then the gas cap sounds like it may need replaced.

If this does not correct the fault here then next the fuel system would need to be tested and is usually best done with special test tools by an experienced shop.You may have an intermittent issue with the fuel injection pump as well that may be causing this here.I would start with the gas cap check and then go from there to see if the fault can be located and corrected.

I hope this info has helped,if you need anything else let me know before rating my help here,thanks Pete.
