I had this problem with my focus a couple years ago.I did a couple gas treatments which helped temporarily every time. I had a mechanic friend look at it and he changed my fuel injector. Hopefully its something simple.

I have a 2013 ford focus se, seems when I tank my car has startup issues and needs to be gas peddled up to stay on. Swapped gas pump to have the same issue.
