sounds like it might be a faulty carburetor. It uses what's in the carb bowl and then out of gas.

First try loosening the gas cap and see if it still quits. If not then you need a new gas cap. If it still quits you might have a restriction or clog getting fuel to the carburetor, possibly the float valve in the bowl under the carburetor.
