Problems with my car

Ok, I was at the gas station. Filled up, got back in the car, started her up, and then it died. I had to restart it, then give it a lot of gas so it wont die out again. What is the problem?

could be Very bad gas, clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump ect... the list could go on to what the problem is.

was the gas in the car completely sucked dry before you filled up?

Its your Intake. Is it cold out were you live. The Intakes tend to boggle in the cold.

but it sounds like it's only happening when he fills with gas.

try switching gas stations, I've heard that some stations' tanks have water leaks in them and then you pump a little water into the car and it gives you problems.

Yes, but when I open the gas cap, usually air comes out right? In my case it doesnt.
