85 Ranger starving for fuel when cruising

85 Ranger 2.3 L – 4cyl - 2wd– auto – EFI
Symptoms - starving for fuel when cruising, step on it and it begins to die then picks up and goes for a while then starts all over again.
Code 41 comes up, code states that HEGO lean condition.
Took EGR valve out of equation ( removed vac hose), still does the same thing.
When driving you can feel something change then the starving problem occurs.
Fuel pressure has been checked and ok.
Any ideas for this?
Thanks.

always replace the fuel filter 1st

also your EGR valve may be jammed in the open position from carbon buildup

From my point of view if the fuel filter was plugged it would not accelerate. Thanks
