Check the fuelcap first for clogged breather holes. The tank could be sucked vacuum while driving. Problem gets worse when fuel tank is full.
Second is to check the ignition system - loose/damaged lines, sparkplugs blacked out etc (assuming its not a diesel engine). Might run on less cylinders because of irregular firing. Exhaust might smell like fuel.
Third check fuel filter - might be clogged and might need replacement. If it's been changed recently, make sure there's no airpocket in the filter housing. Bleed the filter housing properly to get rid of air pockets.
it is dirt trapped by the filter and yes it is normal, work for a Ford dealer see this all the time, would suggest you change gas stations or bring it to there attention that thier fuel is dirty. Make sure you change the filter at least every 30,000 miles, use a Motorcraft factory filter, they are by far the longest lasting and best at filtering.
