Is the service engine soon light on? If so visit your local auto parts store and have them scan the computer for trouble codes. Most stores will do it for free. Since this started happening right after you got gas I'd suspect an EVAP system problem. Such as the vent valve or purge valve stuck open and upsetting the air to fuel mixture. This should trigger the service engine soon light and set a trouble code. Hope that helps! Jim
