Unhappy Having problems with fuel pump, i think

OK so Im new as a ford ranger owner,I got a 94 ranger 2.3 XLT stick shift,I just got it three weeks a go as a work truck due to its reliability.so far is been a good experience,until today.The truck starts good and run perfect until about 40 miles of freeway,than after those miles i get off the freeway and the engine starts rambling,like its not getting enough fuel,when i come to a complete stop it seems like its gonna stall but it doesnt,after i get it going on first which at the time the engine seems not to have fuel and is trying to stall.but than it seems like it get the right amount if fuel and it goes into send and so on as normal but sometimes while at third gear i get the same issue.after running like that for a few minutes it starts to sort of back fire and try to stall at different gears.but after i get home or stop the truck for a few minutes the problem goes away,until once again i used the truck for about 20-30 miles.so far i changed the fuel filter on my way back from work and thought the problem was gone,but on my way home it started again,any one has something similar happen that could share what they founs was the problem with the truck,thanks for the help in advance,im new to the forum and it seem to have tons of information and help for ranger owners,is a pleasure to be part of this forum

Bad gas more than likely, add heet or isopropyl alcohol(6OZ.)
