Check to make sure the vents are open and not pinched. When it dies, remove the fuel cap to see if there is a lot of vacuum in it.

In response to the reply from my earlier question, my car only seems to want to kill when driving with my foot on the gas to applying the brake at which time you have to shift into neutral and give it gas to keep it running. Then once you shift back into gear it runs fine again. Any other suggestions?I've put a new gas cap on that is vented well. Thank you.
