I agree with fuel filters, after that fuel pump. The car probably has a fuel filter under the hood with a big canister. But there is also a fuel filter in the inlet to the fuel pump - part of the fitting. Then check the "screen" on the bottom of the gas tank, but do that last as it is a mess (with gas everywhere).
One thing you can do is disconnect the return line from the fuel tank and run a hose into a container. When the key is "on" you should be circulating fuel, or in this case pumping gas from the tank through the injection pump and back to the tank or in this case the collection container. If fuel isn't coming back then you have a fuel pump or filter problem.
