    Have you checked the fuel filter (#56-6360) or fuel line for clogs?

    Sounds like the engine is running on the fuel that has filled the bowl but the bowl isn't refilling fast enough. I'd check for obstructions, maybe try cleaning out the carb. Check the needle valve is working properly. 
     
    I've never experienced this myself, but I've read about clogged vents causing problems. The vent allows air to enter the tank as fuel leaves. If air can't get in, eventually the fuel eventually stops flowing. You might want to try running it with the fuel lid just unscrewed to allow air in.
