It will run best on Super Unleaded but I usually put the midgrae in mine and can't tell a difference. The computer can sense knock from lower octane fuel and dials everything back to make up for it. You didn't do any damage to it with the gas and it doesn't need any sort of air / fuel adjustment as all those kind of adjustment are handled by the computer. I would stay far far away from any place that handed you a load like that. Likely when the codes are checked (the reason the check engine light is on) then a good mechanic will know what has failed or have a good idea of what direction to go in. My guess is that you have a sensor that has failed and the codes will tell you which one it is. Steve B.
