CAR SOMETIMES FEELS LIKE IT HAS TROUBLE GETTING FUEL INTO THE SYSTEM

Will be driving, and go to press the gas pedal and the car will kind of act like it is out of gas - if I press the gas pedal harder to give it a boost, it does fine. I have tried adding fuel injection cleaners and it seems to be getting worse. Any suggestions?

Do you
have the same problem?

Rent a pressure tester from the parts store and check the fuel pressure.

No, the check engine light does not come on.

As far as having the fuel pressure checked, I wouldn't know where to begin :)
