    It will most likely be because its drawing too much current... this is typically due to it being put under a heavier load than normal... I'd replace your fuel filter if you haven't already... it could also be a sign the pumps on its way out...

    Also check your fuel trims... if they are quite a high additive value on LTFT's then check the FPR vac pipe is in good nick...
