Default what are the symptoms of bad gas in car??

I have a 98 mustang gt that i havent been drivin in about a month and havent started it and barely had any gas, just put 93 octane in it and drove it down the street. Car has major loss of power and feels like a spudder thru the rpms. What do i do?? hasnt done this before, only when it has been sitting for awhile.

Could be bad gas, but also could be clogged/dirty fuel filter. Could be water condensation if it set for a while with almost no gas in the tank.

+1 ^^^add all the funk at the bottom of the barrel and you got a good mix.

sitting for a month with little gas...the poor horse has separation anxiety!
