Engine Performance problem
2002 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl Automatic 62,000 miles

the code is saying that it has something to do with the gas. Gas cap is on tight. Made sure that I fueled up twice with really good Vpower gas because I thought maybe I had gotton some bad gas. Put fuel injector cleaner each fill up.

Problem: Light is still on after being reset and car sputters upon eceleration. Especially a quick eceleration. It doesn't have the power.
Do you

I could give myself a kick, but I didn't see it. The gentleman that was using the device just said that it had something to do with the gas or gas cap.
