Fault codes P0144, P0171, P0313, P0313P? and P0444

Hello again everyone I hope you are all enjoying smooth motoring!
An engine warning light came on my 2001 330i The light came on as I was low on fuel, just before I got to a pump, and so i read the codes and above is what came up. I did a couple of searches on the forums and it seems like i have a leak or faulty hose somewhere and maybe need a new fuel filter. I'd like to go into my local BMW specialist with some foreknowlege so I thought i'd ask here for some help! Forewarned is forearmed so they say!
I've also read the Wiki and learned of some disturbing water pump failures, should I get this done before it happens as prevention is better than cure right?
BTW, I vary rarely use the car and it sat for a few weeks during winter, since the 40k BMW service last summer, the past year I have only done a couple of thousand miles, is there anything I can do for the car, since it is my pride and joy.
Thanks in advance.

try changing the fuel filter and clean ur injectors for a start, clear the codes and drive it for a week.
after that, scan it for codes again and let us know the findings.
as a heads up, NEVER leave ur car empty of gas, the residue inside ur gas tank will be sucked by up and will cause the injectors to clog, and being that our cars are very delicate, anything out of the ordinary will fire an error.
good luck

I took it to a local independant garage who cleared all my codes, said for me to drive it for a week and see how i get on. So far so good.
