    Could be water in the gas or the fuel injectors are clogged or something to do with the fuel pump or filter. Try changing the fuel and the filter first. See if that helps.
    Change the fuel filter then put an inline filter on it to. The inline filter will help the internal filter cleaner a lot longer
