if your tank is almost done as in out of gas, it should be normal because there isnt enough fuel to keep the engine running and air is getting into the line. but dont quote me

I just did quote you on that, extra air, and too little fuel WILL make the idle JUMP up and do funny things.

What mixture ratio are you using for the oil and gas mixture?
