Sounds to me that the dirty throttle body in your car is the problem. Over time, the throttle body gets caked with dirt and numerous other particles, causing blockage in the passage between the throttle body to the engine, and eventually throws off the air/fuel mixture ratio from the MAF sensor. You need to get your throttle body cleaned up, and you can actually do this yourself without taking it to the dealership. Just buy yourself a carb/throttle body cleaner spray from an auto parts store, get together some old rags, and you're good to go.
I would run some gas cleaner in the gas; then changed the oil after that tank is dry.
