Moped dies when i give it gas

My Peugeot 103 moped has trouble starting. When i give it gas it gives a little putting noise and then chokes. Riding down hills gets the engine turning over and going but once i get to flat ground or continue pedaling as hard as i can it dies.

when you 'give it gas' you are actually giving it air. i bet your main jet is plugged our you have other fuel delivery issues. first see if fuel is flowing unrestricted to the carb, and if so, clean the carb.
