Seriously, you've gotta test it out when the car won't run anymore. It almost sounds like something in the system is heating up... fuel pressure would be great to know when you turn the car on and again when it no loner runs. I don't remember if you verified whether or not the car has spark when it fails but that's worth double checking as well.

This sounds a lot like my '70 Ford truck acted when the fuel filters were clogged up. It'd start up just fine and let you drive off a few miles before the filter plugged up again and then it'd quit. Much later once the pressure in the fuel lines died down the debris in the filter would settle and you could go again until things got plugged up.
