From your discription it seems the engine IS actually "running out of gas" and the poor performance issue is due to fuel starvation.. IF fuel 'level' is sufficient - It's possible the fuel in tank 1 is contaminated or the in tank fuel pump is failing .. Suggest having local repair shop have a look at it for you so a fuel pressure test can be performed... Got to be tested to determine the cause of this problem.
