Default dirty fuel quesstion

I have a 98 4.0 with 195k on it and I don't know all its history but I've had it almost 4 years now. It has CAI, super 40 muffler, BBK throttle body. But this past week I was doing some maintenance, and put new coil pack, spark plugs / wires, air filter, and fuel filter on. And when I got old filter off fuel cam out because I didn't depressurize the system, because of that I got a good look at the fuel from the tank and noticed it was dark brown. Now there is a can of sea foam from fill up but I'm down to a third of a tank. Now question is should it be that dark from sea foam cleaning tank there isn't a fuel return that I know of, to return dirty fuel back to tank. what are some thoughts. Thanks for any opinions.

That discoloration could be from fuel line corrosion or a type of tank corrosion as well. Try running it almost empty, dump a third or more of seafoam in the tank then run it to see if it cleared any of that up.
