It's not a conclusive determination, but I will never use their gas again. I fill up with Chevron pretty much religiously, and if not available I use 76. I definitely miss the Sunoco 94 when I lived on the east coast!

Looking at his AFR, it looks like the car is hitting the targeted AFR's for the most part. Because of how unsmooth the graph is, it looks like this is related to ignition - which could be something wrong with a plug/coil, or a gas issue, etc..

Curious if the car has any shadow codes in there..

Sunoco 94 has been gone for several years; now just 93
