First thing i would do is take everything apart one by one, starting with the air supply side, then the fuel supply side, and clean it all.
If it hasn't done many miles it may just be bunged up and need a clean.

MK4 XR3i efi :D :D is she full 90 spec ?? - miss my ole lass
is it a late G reg or H reg 1.6 efi ? then will have auto chock - is common idle control and choke to stick - causing the start rev problem, my ole lass specially in winter months if i had done a trip abroad and been sat several weeks do the exact same thing - strip clean the idle control and choke lubricate - fix back on lub again and should cure it.
because she been sat so long and newish pump when you turn ignition key you should hear the pump inside petrol tank, should be a strong sound as it pressure primes the system if its a week sound hardly heard pump could just slack with lack of use or electrical connects rusted with been sat.
otherwise like vinny said go through the whole air /fuel systems strip and clean them out.
get some pics up in members car section :D :D

YOU BARSTEWARD I HATE YOU LOL :D :p
take me hat off to you mate for having her and looking after her - last of the old skool before the emission and electronic crap came in :rolleyes:
G reg mmm you could be lucky as some of the early EFi still had the fuel pump on outside of tank but then they changed upgraded for some reason Ford decided the last ones to fit the fuel pump in the tank and can be a git of a job lol
if you lift the backseat fold it down in footwell you will see the fuel pump wiring goes through a gromet which can painly pull up to see top of fuel sender unit shine torch in see if pump and fuel gauge wire connections are ok.
