Vapor lock, comes to mind, where is so hot the gasoline begins to boil, and your throttle and injectors do not know what to do with the fumes~

insulate or shield your fuel lines to stop the gas from boiling would be the course of action~

Check your codes first, and come back here with the results. Something could be triggering the auto shut down.
