Like maybe it's running out of fuel? Does the SES light come on?
This could be simple Fuel Delivery... How full is the tank? Are you @1/4 maybe?
What about the filter? How old is it?
Here's what I would do. After it dies, turn the key Off as quick as you can and drain the bowl to see what's in there and if you've simply run-out. Look above the pass ft tire, you'll see a 3/8" metal tube, against the motor that ends there, it's the drain for the bowl (yellow lever you slide to the side). Get a cup, open the lever, drain the fuel bowl, look at the fuel, close the lever. Then, turn the key to the ON position (should hear the pump) for 15 secs. Drain the fuel bowl again, whaddya got?
