You could be running the incorrect octane or your local fuel is suspect or your tune is incorrect or a host of other reasons. Try loading a lower octane tune or tank-up with higher octane fuel and see what happens. Remember: when trying to use a higher octane fuel, you'll need to drive about 10-20 miles before the higher octane from the tank makes it to the engine immediately after filling the tank.
