Welcome!! I'm PopDaddy thank you for using Just Answer.when it starts to die again, crack open the fuel cap and see if it runs normal. if so, replace the cap.

JACUSTOMER-gjiqvake- :

Thanks, ***** ***** the first thing I checked, not a venting problem

PopDaddy :

You've done about everything i would do, so I'm going to opt out and allow another tech to give it a shot. Don't reply as this will connect us up again... Thanks!!

Have you tried cracking open the fuel cap as it's dying?

The fuel cap might not be venting, creating a vacuum in the tank
