    Depending on what car you have and how old, looks very much like it needs a maintenance job rather badly.  Fuel or fuel mixture does not seem to be doing well.  Of course, there are other issues, like spark plugs, etc.

    Well....I would check a few things (all DYIs):

    - Replace the fuel filter
    - Add a fuel conditioner to your tank to remove any water in the bottom of the tank
    - Replace all spark pugs AND the plug wires
    - Add a fuel injector cleaner (if its a newer car that is equipped with fuel injection)......otherwise add carb cleaner to the fuel tank.
