Sounds like its in limp mode. You need to get the engine codes scanned ASAP before you drive it anymore. Tow it to a garage or buy a cheap scan tool.

If it ran fine before the gasup, I'd guess you got gas with water in it. Get some Drygas and see if it remedies the problem before resorting to more expensive options.

It also sounds like bad gas to me. I've done the "Heet" and stuff like that before, but now I feel it's best to get a siphon hose and fill up some 5 gallon cans for your lawn mower, pressure washer, generator, anything but your car.

Just my thought,s could not hurt to check your gas cap,may not be sealing proper.
