Battery? How long do you run it before starting again? If you run it for say 20min by then your battery is charged and ready to go...
Or it could be a dirty fuel filter.

I have the same problem, I changed fuel filter, but no cure. A man said this may be occur due to low compression of cylinder. But I am not sure, to increase the compression, the engine must be rebuilt. Also check fuel pressure.
