Well, what's dying?

Are you experiencing total electrical failure (no lights, no radio, no spark

electrical connector)? Or just the motor sputtering to a halt with
everything else functional?

If it starts right back up it's not likely to be fuel cutoff. You would hear
the pump clicking away as it built up pressure first.
