Car not running well

Hey guys, I don't know if it makes sense but I need to ask something. Last week I went to a gas station to fill up the tank and since then, my car runs like it was on 5 cylinders, it's like a spark plug wasn't working. Can bad gas do that?

yes, in Haiti you don't always find good fuel, only a few places sell good fuel but that day I was running on empty and wouldn't have enough fuel to get where I usually do gas so I fillep up the tank somewhere else.

Thats what it will be then I would have thought at this stage, you will just have to let it run through, might be an idea to put an in line filter in under the bonnet.
