It will help members to immediately understand what you are asking and to give accurate advice if you use the thread title to indicate your question AND to keep each thread on ONE topic.

I would pull your injectors and check them, as well as changing out the fuel filter. If it sat for four years, there's a good chance there was some moisture in the tank and it caused some rust, even if very minor. I had my 89 VDP not run right because gunked up injectors which can be cleaned, typically. Also, your pump is underneath on the driver's side, just ahead of the rear wheel. It's pretty easy to get to (I think you asked on another thread).
