Replace your fuel filter. Add some 93 octane in there again. Don't ever put anything less in there again. My car had the same problem. Turns out that my fuel injectors were pretty bad. I replaced mine with new ones, along with a full tune up and everything was better than the day I got it.

Oh yes, I put some bad gasoline in my car long time ago on a trip and it really make it run so bad without good power. Would gasoline with moisture in it do this too? I think so, I only imagine what moisture would do and it seem it would make you really loose a lot of power. I know another one that would make you loose power bad also but I can talk about that one some other time, has to do with putting on those caps between spark plug and head, these were use if you are fouling out spark plugs because of small oil leaking.
