Sounds like you might have got some bad gas.

i thought that, then was told possible two sensors one a cam shaft position sensor and a crank shaft position sensor...do these sound possible?

Possible. Just odd it all started right after filling with gas.

I feel it's wise to get a couple of 5 gallon gas cans, a good siphon and take out all the gas, then throw in a gallon of premium and try it out. If you don't want to try that, put a bottle of Drygas or one of the other products specifically designed to help rid water in gas.

well i took off fuel line from rail, it spit out about 1 oz. of fuel then quit, each time i turned on the key.... fuel pump?

I'd recommend starting at the fuel filter in case it clogged. After that an option would be the fuel pump
