Tach dies and engine stalls sometimes. i can't press the gas pedal too far or the engine revs and the car slows down but doesn't stall.

Sounds as if it is starving for air or fuel. check the air filter and replace fuel filter. if it still does it check the fuel pressure. if it is low replace the fuel pump

Engine starves for fuel after running about 50 miles or so...

Has Neon do same, I ran fuel at low level, on hot day, ran engine until it started to act up & threw a fuel pressure gauge on it. Was at approx 5 psi. Cold next morning, 48-50 psi. Always hot day about 30-40 miles into work in morning, o.k. Sit in hot sun all day & would happen 3-4 times on way home. Sit and let cool, 20 minutes or so & go again for a while. Cool day, no problem. Change pump I would.
