Hello. I have a 2015 Escape and the last few months when I fill it with gas, I have to start it old school and pump the gas to get it started, otherwise it stalls out. Every other time I have no issues starting my car. Anyone else have this issue?

Welcome to the FFO!

Pumping the accelerator pedal on an engine that has electronic fuel injection while the engine is off and the ignition is on or off doesn't do much.
The throttle body is opening and closing, but there is no accelerator pump in fuel injection. Unlike a carbed engine where every time you step on the pedal a shot of fuel is squirted into the engine.

If you are have engine stalling issues, I have some questions:
How many miles (or KMs) on your vehicle?
Is the check engine light on?
How long ago was the air and fuel filter changed?
Have the oxygen sensors been replaced?

After the next fill up, leave the gas cap off or loose and see how the engine starts without pumping
