I see, thanks.
You will want to check the fuel pressure to see if it is too low.
Fuel Pressure Specification 407 KPa +/- 34 KPa (59 psi +/- 5 psi).
Note: Ignition on, engine not running.

Then if the fuel pressure and flow are good, the exhaust may be a little bit restricted. You can have a back pressure test done on it at most exhaust shops to see if the cat is clogged.
If they are both ok, then you will want to take a sample of the fuel to be sure that it’s not contaminated.
