today my car was running fine then i went and put gas in it ran good for about five miles then started missing real bad and the check engine light came on. went and put dry gas in it and still doing it it is also idling real hard up to almost 2rpms in park have any idea whats going on?

hm.. sometimes the light comes on because you didn't screw the gas cap on tight enough.. try that and if not take it to a mechanic and make them do that computer thing.. where they hook the computer up to your car somehow and get the codes or something.. and that usually makes it go away.. my boyfriend just did that yesterday and his check engine light went away and it hasn't come back.. so hopefully that will work.. i'm sure it will

Maybe (?) a bad batch of gasoline from the place you got your gas from.
