With gas engine, does it seem to starve for fuel or does it cut off like you shutoff the key?

If it acts like fuel, have you removed the tank outlet fitting/strainer. This is area that gets overlooked,and you will find that there is a wire strainer on the fitting, and can become clogged as you run. By removing the fitting, you can drain and clean the tank and clean this strainer.

If it shuts off like key,check for spark and if no spark, the coil is likely failing.
