Sounds like fuel blockage....pump the bulb when it starts to fade and if it picks up then you got fuel line/pump problems.

"you may just be running long enough to suck the fuel from the fuel hose, then it's drawing a vacuum.

may be just a clog or your sucking something in the pickup tube in your fuel tank..

as mentioned, squeeze the bulb as soon as it drops to 0..or just have someone lightly squeeze the bulb while your running..it should remain pretty hard.."
