So i finally got a nice longish trip under the cruze's belt. 88 miles round trip.I get to my destination and see i have about 1/8 a tank of gas left.Now minus the dealer fill of 87.Ive put 2 tanks of sunoco 91 in and have not had any issues as far as pulsating.The only gas station around that was open the time of night was a sheetz.They only had 87 89 and 93.So i put 5 gallons of 93 in.On the return home i noticed pulsating in the gas pedal and it felt sluggish,not what im used to with this car.My question is am i experiencing heat soak to some extent?It was 31*f and highway driving.Or did i just get some "bad" gas from sheetz?


Thanks for any and all thoughts,
Rob

I'll third that for bad gas. Stop by a Shell dealership and put a tank of premium in. When that tank runs down do it one more time. Shell Premium has some of the best fuel system cleaners available.

Ahh, you used gas commonly known as a colloquialism for recurrent diarrhea. That's the issue right there.

No it is not one i use unless im almost empty and need it to get home like last night. I usually use sunoco 91.Im leaning towards bad gas as well.But if its just dumb luck with the timing of this issue rising,other ideas to keep in mind after i burn through this little bit of gas?Ill keep a look out for a shell station however dont really know of any.
