I would start with a blue spring upgrade in your fuel bowl. After that look at a pump such as air dog.

Are you sure that is due to a lack of fuel? Have a gauge?

Do a search for the above stated.

If you get a gauge for the fuel pressure. It does not have to state FUEL. You can use an oil pressure gauge.

No the bully dog won't read fuel psi, there is no sensor input on the motor for it to read thru the OBDII port. Your gonna need a aftermarket gauge, if your gonna mount it in the cab to keep an eye on it, you are gonna want a electric sending unit and not mechanical.

Here is a write up.
