Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Look i got this Dodge Stratus and I added into the gas tank a bottle of cheap fuel/carburetor cleaner and the car started to stall like it misfiring.
Question is could the be the problem added fuel cleaner into the tank?
Or is it the plugs? Does Anyone know?.

Have you put fresh gas in since the problem started? Those fuel additives require a certain mixture with the fuel. Typically a 5oz bottle will treat 14-20 gallons.
