This is usually caused by the temperature difference between the Gasoline in the fuel station ground tank, and that of your fuel tank.
Without spending money to improve on your fuel tank venting system,,the only thing i can suggest is to pump the fuel in more slowly.

Where is fuel filter for 2004 freestar?

Inside the frame rail, about 3/4 of the way back, about the size of a coke can. May have a guard that hides it.
It is underneath the van on the driver's side near the rear edge of the driver's door. Follow the fuel line coming out of the gas tank to it.

Cleaning 2004 Ford Freestar EGR Valve

The EGR valve is on top of the engine towards the driver's side. The assembly looks like a small canister with the top half crimped on, it has a large tube coming up from the exhaust, 1 electrical connector and red/black vacuum lines as well.

My CEL was on and I was getting horrible gas mileage. First I disconnected the battery. On top of the EGR valve there is a small plastic cover. After carefully removing this (mine was brittle) you can remove the sofe grey foam air filter. Mine was very dirty, I cleaned it with alcohol, let it dry and put it back on. I also removed all the electrical and vacuum lines and sprayed them with mass air flow sensor cleaner.

After getting it all together and reconnecting the battery the check engine light is off. Today I will drive it and see if the gas mileage has improved.

2004 Ford Freestar missing Possible fuel pump?

if you have a bad spark plug wire, it will draw condensation and make engine run rough.... you can check this by getting a spray bottle and filling it with water, spray a mist over top of the wires while the car is running, and if one is bad it will show.... (looks like little lightning coming off of wire) .... hope this helps
