Had the same problem with my 240 a few times, changed the main fuel filter and it cured it. Also worth checking your air filter and, obviously, your in-line fuel filter. If you are having problems with alge in your fuel, the filters can clog up over time and simply starve the engine of its power. Don't forget there is a filter in the bottom of your fuel tank too, but that is mainly for rock sized particles, but if your in-line is badly clogged it might be worth pulling the tank filter.
