It also acts as if its running out of gas

From what info you gave I would have to say that motor is shot, used up. Its given you all it had. Black smoke means your burning oil.My first assumption would be piston rings, guess it could also be a head gasket, or a stuck valve. I would start by doing both a compression and leakdown test of all piston cylinders and go from there if they are all equally or close to, then its rings.
