It sounds like you may have excessive water in the fuel of the fuel tank. You should try to put in some dry gas to disperse the water in the tank and try a different fuel station to see if the fuel is the problem.

If you pull in to refuel your car and see a fuel truck there then go to a different station. The station fuel tanks always have some water in the tanks and it settles at the bottom. When a fuel truck puts fuel in to the tanks it stirs up the water for a while, then it settles to bottom again. If you get fuel within this period of time then you will get extra water in your tank and you will have problems.
