I resently put gas in my truck and when I pulled

I recently put gas in my truck and when I pulled out of the station, it stalled. Eventually it started and ran. The next day it started fine but when I revved the engine it stuttered but never stalled. The following day it turned over but never started. Any suggestions?

Might have got some water in the fuel tank, might have fueled with diesel accidentally, might be unrelated to fueling. I would start with a new fuel filter.

Car stalls at 45mph but starts and runs fine after

One possible cause is a stuck torque converter or solenoid.
The torque converter can stay in lockup which has the effect of a manual transmission and not pushing in the clutch.

We were in a parking lot and the engine shut off. I pulled into a stall shut it off and restarted and it drove fine. No warning lights appeared

Sometimes a little water in the gas can cause vapour lock & stalling. Put a little methyl hydrate( clean flow) in the gas. Also never fill up when you see a tanker at the service station filling station storage tanks. This tends to stir any dirt & water up into the gas & you get their problem. Good luck!

My car has been running perfectly since I got it. I got a full service oil change done on it less than a week before the incident. I fill up the tank and went to pull out from the gas station and the car...

You may have gotten bad gas. The tanks have sediment and water and whatever in the bottom at the service stations, if the gas was being dumped in the tanks during your fillup or shortly before, water may have been pumped into your gas tank. You cannot compress water in your engine as it will not burn, once the water clears your engine you should be fine with no permanent problems, change gas stations immediatly and maybe use a gas dryer additive to help remove any water that may still be in the tank.

Zx2 engine stalls at idle speeds

Your symptoms can be from many things however I have seen this often from stopped up fuel filters in several different cars.
It could also be from very bad gas.
My suggestion is that if the car has high mileage OR you have recently goten gas from an unfamiliar service station, you shoudo change the fuel filter and put some good fuel additive in (after the new filter) to get rid of any water or other contaminates in the gas tank.
I recommend "SeaFoam". It is more expensive that others but has a very good reputation. It really works!
