WHEN ACCELERATING THE ENGINE SEEMS TO BE CUTTING ON PETROL CONSUMPTION, WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?

2004 Renault Clio • 187,000 miles

When accelerating the car seems to be cutting petrol and it moved very slow when the rave counter is on 50-60.

Any warning lights on? Is it stick or automatic?

Its a manual 5 forward and no warning lights.

So when you accelerate to 5000/6000 rpm(tachometer) it seems to peak off and slow? That's awful high rpm to be using? Engine is not designed to operate in that range.
