I'm sure it could be something else but fuel seems to be the likely culprit since she ran great out of the gate.
They are all snake oil and not worth your money.
Unless someone has done a lot of work on that engine you are kind of wasting your money running 93.
Did you put any kind of fuel stabilizer in when you winterized?
