Intermittent dying

I have a 2012 YT1AK (like an EZ Go Workhorse) that randomly dies. Sometimes it will go for a few seconds then die, sometimes it will go for several minutes then die. When it dies, it just quits. Choking doesn't help, and generally it will start right back up.
Rarely, it will act like the battery is weak, but most often it just starts right back up. I've blown out the fuel lines, new filter and lines, run only filtered non-ethanol gas. I'm stumped..

Sorry. I guess its actually a YTF1. My apologies, not very familiar with the Yamaha golf carts.

I had a similar problem with my G14. I would be on my way home from the golf course, and it would just die. After a few minutes it would start again. It turned out to be a piece of electrical tape like material in the gas tank. It would get sucked up by the fuel pump, and block the fuel pickup.

Thank you for your reply. I've been away for a bit, obviously.
I did my best to scour the tank for anything that might get caught up like that but didn't see anything. On rare occasion, it will begin to die then catch again. I'm still stumped...

I think what i might try is getting something like the fuel line pickup/filter that is used in chain saws (if i can find one the right size) and putting that on the end of the fuel pickup. That would at least allow fuel to be drawn in from several directions.
