If it's a carbureted engine could be either fuel filter or carburetor float; more likely the filter. Most older Toys have a sight glass in the side of the carb. Next time it dies, pull over and check the sight glass; you'll probably see the fuel level well below normal or maybe not at all. Proper level will be right in the center of the sightglass.
