ACTS LIKE NO FUEL AT 40MPH

1999 Ford Taurus

Engine Performance problem
1999 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 106000 miles

My daughter purchased this car a week ago. She filled up gas and problem started. Would not move over 40 mph and drop rpm s quick, til just stopped. Found huge hole in fuel filler tube, where vapor line had rotted off. Found 1.5 gallons of water in gas tank, from water off tire into hole. Emptyed tank, replaced fuel filler tube, replaced fuel filter. Put dry gas in tank with 93 octane gas from different gas station. Still will not run over 40mph with same symptoms.
could this be a fuel position sensor problem or egr problem?
