If it quits and wont even turn over, you're probably loosing +12v to the ignition switch. When the switch fed and distributed +12v is lost the CDI has no power so it dies. No power to trip the starter solenoid when you try to re-start so it won't pull in. A key symptom of failure is "will not turn over." Not a fuel related issue.
