then they should be. So I put in fuel system cleaner in the

Your acceleration problem may be transmission related. It sounds like it is not up-shifting at the right time. More info is needed to troubleshoot the "shuts off" problem. Are you sure you followed the instructions on the additives you used and put them into the correct systems?
