Maybe he pulled from the wrong one, although I'm not sure why the lead would hurt either. Or perhaps the oxygen in the fuel messed with the dme's AFR targeting? I don't know I figured what you did, at worst it wouldn't do anything maybe I just sucked at driving or something. Makes me want to dyno on the same day running super low with 93 then put some race fuel in and see what it does.
10 to 1 you got some bad gas. Maybe it picked up some moisture from sitting over the off season. I had a 5 gal sealed VP container from a local speed shop. It actually sat for almost a year, but I know it was sealed and in a pretty stable environment in my garage.
