Most likely a blocked vent in the fuel cap. 3 mins is too long for a fuel system problem if that's not it, so if there's still a problem, suspect the ignition coil is failing when itt gets hot.

Check the governer, its a lever that pulls the throttle plate from the engine side. Try manually overriding it (twist it open as the engine's running) and see if that does it.
