It sounds to me like it may be time for a little carburetor maintenance. You may have a dirty or clogged main jet, contaminated fuel (water), or leaking nozzle seals.

If you think this is something you may want to tackle, I put together some information and pictures to look at. Take a look and post back with any questions and we will try to help as best as we can.
