Default 94 idi cuts off when around 1/4 tank

Just bought a 94 turbo idi 250k miles very good condition, runs a little rough when you first start it but smooths out sometimes it has a bump to it idiling but for the most part runs smooth I suspect a sticking or bad injector causing that , It will also cut off when you get around a 1/4 of a tank , I pumped it out got pretty much all the fuel out , treated with diesel Kleen and it runs longer before it cuts off Iím thinking maybe trash in the tank still , replaced the fuel filter it wasnít that dirty few pieces of trash any feedback would be awesome thanks

Ya might wanna drop the tank and inspect the inside components. While youre at it, inspect or replace all hoses from tank to engine, to start with. Process of elimination is a pain but necessary when chasing gremlins.
