Question: 88 wrangler stalls

I had purchased a bad tank of gas, or so I thought, about 12 hours after, my wrangler would start and soon stall. I put two cans of dry gas in, seemed to work, then the next day it stalled as soon as I started driving. This is at the mechanics and they have no clue whats going on, It as a new fuel pump, new fuel filter, new lines ran and gets about 50 pounds of pressure in the tank, new air filter, and it still stalls after starting. Any ideas???

Did they check the carb or plugs? check the plugs and see if they're gummed up or fouled. I'm not familiar with the 88, if it has any fuel injection system of any kind then check any sensors in the fuel system on the way to the carb and make sure they're not gummed up. If everything looks good then run some sea foam or marvel mystery oil (gas additive) through the tank and see if that clears it up. don't forget your O2 sensor in the exhaust too. It's unlikely it fouled but the 80's were a transitional time for carb and fuel injection and systems around that time were unpredictable at best.
