mini has broken down AGAIN!!

the car was really struggling, so i took it onto the pavement, where it died!
first thoughts were petrol, but topped it up and nothing.
It is definately something to do with the injection unit, i can get the engine to run, but i have to pulse/keep pressing the accelerator loadsa times for the revs to rise, but as soon as i put my foot down the engine just dies, as though there is no fuel getting into the engine..
I would do the process of elimination, but there is that many components to the injection unit, that it would be cheaper just to buy a whole new unit!
i taken the injectors off and given them a clean, but i have split one of the rubers now, and rover has had to order them in, they are comin on tuesday. but i don't think it is the injectors, as they seem to be in good condition.
it is a MPI, 33K miles.

I thought fuel filter? there is still fuel at the inj unit end odviously, but just prob not enough!
If not, if it had a dodgey vacuum pump, or inj valve, would that course a similar problem?
I have had the car about 18 months, and have never changed the fuel filter, i don't know about the previous owner tho.
