Have you replaced the spark plugs, because if bad gas there is a good chance they are fouled.

No didn’t change the plugs we took them out and they did not look Fouled out it ran pretty good at idle then just choked out
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Does it have a drain plug or not?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Are you there
Nissan Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

No unfortunately they do not. You may have to remove the tank and have it cleaned out , depending what you picked up. Try some moisture treatment . Have you run some of that fuel into a clear bottle to see what you may have picked up.

Water for sure
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I already told you I ran sea foam through it
Nissan Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 7 months ago

Sea foam is ok but not the best if heavy in water. If it has that much you may have to drop the tank. Do you know where you got this fuel ? wouldn't hurt to contact them and see if they would help in any costs incurred.

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

What makes you think you have bad gas? Cause your description sounds more like a bad distributor or incorrect spark plugs. Did you take a fuel sample to verify bad gas?
