Have cleaned fuel tank
Expert:  JON replied 1 year ago.

If you still have spark once it quits, then I would direct attention towards the fuel system. Check that the fuel pump is still pumping fuel and the fuel filter is full of fuel. it could be an internal carb issue once fuel pressure is built up and would require you to remove and clean the carb. I would check the fuel pump and filter first though. Also, once it quits, remove the fuel cap and try to restart to make sure the fuel system is venting properly. If it starts after cap removal, replace the fuel cap as it is not venting properly.
