Default air in fuel line

hi im just new to this site. 2 Days ago i accidentally put 10litres of vegetable oil in my peugeot 306 1.9 straight diesel. I usually run it on bio diesel and got the drums mixed up and filled it with vegetable oil. After this accident i put 30 litres of white diesel in and changed the filter. the car seemed to be running fine and when left ticking over its is fine for quite a long time although after a load has been put on and im driving up the road after about 15 mins the car dies out and will not start. i had a look at the fuel line leading into the filter and when revving the car noticed big air bubbles in it. can anyone help with what to do about this or to get the air bubbles out and get my car running normal again? thanks

Air is obviously being drawn in from somewhere.
Check the fuel lines for pinholes.
Check fuel line connections & clamps are done up properly - if necessary undo, clean, check & refit.
Check the pickup in the fuel tank.
Loosen the filler cap & see if it improves.
