Old gas, bad fuel lines; Carburetor needs rebuilding; fuel filter clogged.
These are a few of the things that could be wrong.
It sounds like not able to keep the flow of fuel going.
Check these things out. If it is a 2 cycle trimmer have a compression check done on the engine before you spend any money.

Your description indicates that the fuel pump may be too weak to start the vehicle but has enough fuel pressure to maintain running once it is started.

Jiffy ice auger its starts but doesnt stay running

Sounds like the float is stuck.See if you can remove the float bowl.Once it's off try and separate the float from the carburetor.The float will be holding in a small needle,check it for free movement.They're pretty inexpensive and would be a good thing to replace.The float will crack,then fill up with fluid.Once full it will cease to function,opening and closing off the fuel flow.Then the needle will stick and you'll get little or no fuel.It's a real simple carb,they're less than $50 brand new if it sounds like too much to work on.Hope this has been some help?You do know this is posted under PC Desktops,right?

Car wont stay running after initial start up?

Will it stay running if you keep the pedal depressed. If so you have a Idle Air Control valve issue. If it wont run at all it may be a bad fuel pump

Will the car stay running if the batterie is disconected

It should stay running. If your alternator is bad it may not stay running but in all cases it should stay running.
