I filled up with some cheap 93 octane gas yesterday at my local Costco (1.53/gallon). Ever since, my IS has seemed sluggish and I have a nasty, burnt smell coming from my exhaust. My car only has 1,500 miles on it. Did I screw it up with this gas? What should I do?

From the subject line on this thread I was going to suggest some maalox...

Sounds like you just need to burn off some of the gas and fill up with a good quality gas.

Mobil and Exxon are the two best gas out there 92Octane. Really good gas i would prefer no other gas stations. Any rice rocket racers out there will tell you.

TonyMack: i don't think anything will be wrong with your car, what i would do though is find a good gas station and fill up the rest of the tank with that gas. thats what a tech suggested me do when my girlfriend *accidentally* filled my car up with ****ing diesel...i was bout shiet my pants..luckily she noticed after about 7/10th of a gallon..but my car runs perfectly fine now, in exception to long trips..the car engine would sometime die out on me.......im kidding. good luck
