Could be real low octane fuel with ethanol to prop up the octane rating.

IIRC anything over 10 % Ethanol content is not legal to sell in pump gas. E 85 not included in that .
There is a presumptive to test for the amount of ethanol in gasoline. Just google it. Then go down to the station and get a cup of gas and do the test.
It probably isnt the ethanol, its probably really crappy gas mixed with ethanol, and probably more than legally allowed.
Fact is stranger than Fiction
