I have 2005 ford focus that stalls after about 15-20 miles of driving and then anti theft light starts blinking also. the car starts right back up and then I try to put it in gear and it dies. I can milk it home and let it sit for a while and it will run great again then go drive it around for another 20 miles and does same thing.and will sit and idle for days with no problem its not throwing any codes for me to look at either.

Then you should clean the gas tank cap. There should be a tiny hole in it to let air in the tank, probably that hole is clogged.

Tank pressure should be controlled by the EVAP system... vented gas caps are ancient history.
