Changed fuel filter lately? Often a partially clogged filter will allow an engine to idle fine and even drive for a while, but the engine will eventually need more fuel than can be passed. Float level in the carburetor another possibility. And assuming it's not fuel related, you could have an electrical/electonic part that is breaking down when heated up or even a long shot might be a clogged catalytic converter.
