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.

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