Thought I may have gotten some bad gas , since we had ice issues and the local station ran out of 87 octane I put a small amount of 92 in because I was almost out .

If you have an engine misfire and the CEL is on, my bet would be one of your coils might be faulty. Have the truck scanned for the code or codes which will get you a 4 digit code that would verify which one or other issue.

Husbands truck is doing same thing but only when he parks on an incline... He can park on flat and it don't do it... he had it checked with machine and NO CODES WERE GIVEN?.?.?.?.?.?.
