Maybe your not playing with the lines the right way to get it to stay running???LOL
JK
You may try replacing your lines and adding an in-line filter it sounds like the line may be collapsing internally.

Are you saying the rubber fuel lines are collapsing? If this is the case? The next time it stalls......Take off the fuel cap to see if the lines come back to where they belion. And also listen for a woosh sound when you take the cap loose. If you do hear this noise when you take the cap loose?It may be the vent is plugged in the cap?

From the sound of it, your problem may be as the engine demands more fuel, there seems to be some restriction in getting the fuel to flow. It would be like if you took a straw from a drink, blocked one end off, and then tried to suck on the other end (I know what you're thinking. It's not that kind of thing going on here) the straw will collapse in the middle. Is the best way I can describe it (if this is your problem?)

You may also have the screen inside of the fuel tank so clogged with FUNK it won't allow the proper amount of fuel through it. You may have to take it out and check it.

Just a note on some of this so called gasoline now a days. I just repaired a fuel related problem on a tractor engine. The metal fuel supply tube was clogged almost completely closed due to this white looking garbage on the inside of the fuel line. I had to take a rod and dig this crap out of it to get the fuel going again. I'm confused to what is causing this reaction? But only fuel goes into the tank. So the screen on your tank may very well be mostly blocked?

Good Luck. Keep us posted.
