Q: Gas stops pumping early

asked by on

So this is the first time getting gas in this car because I just recently bought it. The old owner put regular fuel 87 in it and I want 93 premium. I was at 1/4 tank left and the pumped stoped at 2/4 could it be that there was a mix of the 87 and 93 octane that I put in? It could've also been that I had the fuel coming a little bit too fast.

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
