FWIW, My brother's 240D was purchased from a lady who let the car sit for a couple of years. The car had acceleration problems from day one. After many fuel filter changes, we took out the tank screen and found it to be 50% covered in a black tar like substance. The procedure is pretty simple. Make sure you run the tank really low, I remember it took almost two five gallon buckets to hold what was left in the "empty" fuel tank.
