Have a Tao Tao Moped 49cc. Runs ok but when I accelerate it dies. What are options

Hi, Richard and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
2. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
3. Air fuel mixture adjustment too lean.
4. Pilot/slow fuel jet clogged.
5. Faulty accelerator pump.
6. Float level too low.
7. Float bowl contaminated old fuel, water, dirt, rust, etc.
8. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
9. Fuel line to carburetor kinked or pinched.
10. Fuel filter clogged.
11. Intake manifold leak.
12. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
13. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
14. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
15. Multi carburetors not in sync.
16. Faulty fuel pump.

My tao tao scooter dies everytime I stop and sometimes going up hills, what's wrong with it?

Tao won't start

Dear Jim,

My own Tao unit is dying as well. Servicing does not appear to be available. The only solution I have found is to buy the Delphi MyFi unit which appears to use an identical interface (see page 10: ). What a bummer!
