Have had a few with crook leads lately. Plus when you take the cap off, check the carbon brush in the cap. Found a lot of them burnt out.

Another one for plugs, leads or dizzy cap.
I had the same problem, it just cropped up on gas before it did in petrol (I now know gas needs a stronger spark).
Was the dizzy cap.
