Any lights lit up on the dash while driving? Like the check engine light?

No engine light sir

Unless the gas was bad it has nothing to do with the engine running poorly. I would have the OBD2 codes checked anyway to see if anything shows up. How long since you had a tuneup?

The gas was bad that was put in approx 4 gallons. Has not had a tune up , but I have purchased a new fuel filter and spark plugs for it. I know from previous owner it had a tune up 70k and atm my mileage is 117,800
