Q: My 2006 Hummer H3 starts fine, boggs down, idles rough, then dies? on 2006 Hummer H3

My Hummer will start right up and sound perfect for about 5 seconds, then bogg down, idle really rough, then die. It's very repeatable.
It started when I filled up with gas at a local station, I was very near empty when I filled up. Is that just a coincident or could it be something to do with the fuel? Check engine light is on.
