Default chugs then dies

Need help! Got some bad gas. Now my '95 F150, 6 cyl. 300 runs about 15 miles, chugs then dies. It starts right up after sitting few hours then repeats. Dual tanks, replaced fuel filter, ran Seafoam through both tanks, replaced coil yesterday still the same problem today. Anyone have idea for me?

If it's bad gas, you will have to get it out of there.

Here's just my two cents from a gas problem I had on a 94 4x4. took it mudding, broke the filler hose and got water all in my tank. Because these tanks are metal, it tarnished the inside. I tried just draining it and filling it with high octane but that tarnish kept reacting with whatever gas I'd put in there. Getting a new gas tank fixed my problem.

Before you go dropping $$ on new stuff, I'd try cleaning the injectors with straight seafoam. There's youtube videos of guys building rigs for like $8 to clean them without pulling them out.
