Hmm, if it was a fuel issue, I would not expect it to run at the beginning.. only crank. Maybe the timing?

We need more details... Sounds its making, ANY idiot lights on the dash, etc?

Oh, was it sitting for a while at all? it MAY be the fuel- IF its been sitting or from a crappy gas station.. there may be water (condensation) in the tank if its sat. Take a mallet (ideally rubber) or some type of banging tool, get under near the gas tank, and as someone else starts it, bang on the gas tank.. if it keeps running with the banging, its water in the gas.
