Hi there. Thanks for using our service.

Sounds like the mechanical lift pump is failing. Next time the engine dies, check to see if the fuel filter is full. If it's low or empty, try pumping fuel manually using the primary lever. If fuel leaks at the lift pump or it takes very long to fill the filter, the lift pump needs to be replaced.

Best Regards.
