Check fuel flow from the pump. If it's low, suspect a collapsing fuel pickup strainer in the gas tank. Sometimes if you remove the gas cap and remove the inlet line from the pump, you can give a shot of compressed air into the line and blow the plugged sock off the tube.

A replacement screen is about four bucks.
