Question about 1998 Lincoln Navigator
You could have received bad fuel or you have a hole in the venting lines. Also put on a locking gascap in case of vandalism. Its obvious this is not good for the system.
You should first check the venting lines at a Repair shop with a "smoke machine". This will show how well the fuel system is sealed. If they find a problem have them repair it because they can recheck it.
The gas tank should be cleaned or replaced. You can use an aftermarket tank of the same capacity. I do not know if the vehicle is operated around salted roads or on the Coast. But it is a 12 year old vehicle and gas costs too much to lose on a bad tank. There should be a high pressure stainless line that can fail too. It should be inspected with the tank.
Keep a clean filter in it. I've rebuilt carburetors on older models that had sand throughout. Hopefully the old filter protected the engine from the sand.
