Get a check-engine light? If so, go to some AutoZone-type place to read the error code. Get the actual number, not just the guys explanation.

Otherwise, it might bebad gas. Clogged fuel injectors dont usually heal by themselves.

Id wait & see if it ever happens again.
I use Techron occasionally (20k miles or more) but thats without any specific problem event. Theres better cleaners out there.

I wouldnt bother using premium gas. Unless its a junk-gas station, regular should be as clean as premium, and your car should not benefit from the octane.

Pay close attention to whether it ever does that again. If so,Id want to catch it while its still under warranty.
