I read about this in popular mechanics, because of the thinning air the map sensor doesn't read enough vacuum and leans the fuel mixture back, one of the solutions is to run higher octane fuel, try contacting popular mechanics automotive dept, to see if there is any other cure
hope this helps

My 2002 chevy express van has no power, missing and running rough


Sounds like you got some bad gas. Be sure and let the station know right away. They may be on the hook to pay for repairs.
Take the van to a shop and have the computer checked for trouble codes.
The gas tank and lines may have to be flushed.
