Unhappy Please Help 500SE

Can anybody please help with some advice>
I have a 1990 500SE that has just been for a service.All works well (new filters ,Plugs and all that) but when you drive her on the open road she chokes,Even stopping at the robot today she feels like there is no fuel coming through.I'm not much of a mechanic but I have noticed a small filter just before the Fuel Pump,COULD THIS BE MY PROBLEM?

If the engine revs freely in neutral but lacks power under load...fuel starvation might be the problem...clogged fuel filter?

That filter could be clogged if it was not replaced when you had all the maintenance done. It could also be a worn out fuel pressure regulator on regulating the fuel pressure correctly.
