Hello. My name is Tan.

This is a failing VRO pump it can't pump enough fuel to keep engine running.

You have a few options.

1) replace the pump.

2) rebuild the fuel pump side of the pump. VRO kit.

3) Use conventional pump and mix your own oil and gas.

Post back with questions.

Thank you......Tan
