Your ford focus stalls after being in traffic for an hour what is wrong?

Change your fuel filter and buy your gas at a Sunoco, instead of Sheetz, Wawa and other high volume gas stores. The "crap" in the underground tanks doesn't have time to settle before they're dumping in more gas to stir it back up, so it goes in your gas tank. Their filters don't catch the small stuff your fuel filter does, so YOU get their trash. We use Sunoco (an AMERICAN company, by the way) and have NEVER had that problem since we switched to them, from the "quick stops."
