When it does this and you stop the car, leave it running and then try revving with the gas cap off. As Michael suggested, I wonder if the gas tank is developing a partial vacuum when running. Removing the cap will restore atmospheric pressure.

Please be careful.

Umm, not fun to do damage to oneself. However, you going to let something like that stop you from working on the car, lol?
