Answer 1
Have you checked the pressure and volume? What about the fuel filter , both the inline filter (maintenance item) and any in tank screens...... This all presumes it actually is a fuel supply issue. -

I had a fuel pump replaced. Now the car runs rough and white / blue smoke emits from the exhaust. what has caused this? It ran fine without any smoke prior to failure of the fuel pump.
When first starting the car in the am or after sitting 8 or so hours the car sputters and acts as if it is starving for gas. After a couple of minutes it runs fine. It will start normally after this.
