Where did you get the gas that you later found to be 87? Could it have been old gas? Gas that sat in a can for a while, gas that sat in a marina's tank over the winter?
I usually make it a practice to use all the gas before we leave or fill all the equipment and boats etc and add stabil but some could have been left and inadvertantly used. Fortunately for my wallet we go avoid the marina fuel.
