Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Gravity feed from tank to carburetor or is there a pulse fuel pump with three hoses? Is ignition system points and condenser or electronic? When it quits have you taken a spare spark plug, attached it to the spark plug wire and with the plug grounded see, if you have spark? You may have a coil failing, and not a fuel problem. The fuel filter will never shows full when running.
