Fuel System

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 944; Year: 1983; Engine (type, size, modifications): Euro-spec 2.5 liter; Total Mileage: 117,000;

Following filling up with a new tank of gas the car will start up and idles smoothly (literally for hours), but will hesitate/sputter and beckfire into the airbox with load or attempted revs beyond idle. The tank was mostly drained and the plugs were changed with no change. Could this all be just "bad gas", a dirty fuel filter secondary to bad gas, or could this be something more serious. Prior to this sudden change the car was very strong.
