Could getting bad gas when you fill up cause the check engine light to come on and cause you to lose acceleration?

Yes. Go to auto zone and have the codes read for free. And change the fuel filter.

It is important to have a well working car while on the road. The lack of fuel getting to the engine would cause hesitation on acceleration,

There could be a few causes for a car to spit and sputter on acceleration. One common cause would be the engine not getting enough fuel, so it could be a problem in the fuel line, fuel filter, or fuel pump.

Fuel pump could be possibly getting weak. Happened to my blazer.

Putting in bad fuel can cause theÊengine to buck during acceleration on a 1999 Dodge Durango. There could also be a problem with the fuel filter or dirty spark plugs.
