Fuel/Turbo Issue

I couldn't really find anything similar posted so I'll describe my situation. I have a 2009 Impreza WRX, right about 9.5k miles. It has always ran very well with no issues so far and I just got it serviced/oil changed.

The problem I think started from either accidentally putting in a lower octane fuel or fuel that wasn't premium as it said. I say this because after I filled it, the first 1/4 tank was fine, then I was cruising on the highway and it started reving up the engine. Basically, it feels very week and if I don't coax it along it will rev really high without actually speeding up. It also feels like the turbo isn't doing anything at all once I get into the rev range it normally kicks on.

I am planning on going to the dealership tomorrow but wanted to see if anyone has experience with this.

Almost sounds like a clutch issue.

I looked around at some what happened to other peoples 09 wrx's that had clutch issues and some of the symptoms are what I'm having ... time to see what the dealer will do
