I ended up putting fuel back in it I did clear the code because I had misfires on all 4 so now I will get the same misfire on all 4 or maybe 1 or 2, I know what misfires feel like but it's throwing codes without me feeling any misfires.

I did not get around to clearing the ECU by the way of pulling the battery cable just yet.

I was just curious if anyone else had this issue?

I'd try a new fuel filter.
The ECU is detecting change in the speed of crankshaft rotation to determine when a misfire occurs. It may mean that it's not misfiring but perhaps just not firing as well as it should. It could also be happening only at higher RPM if the engine is starting to starve of fuel.

Could have got some water in the gas as well. Especially if you used an old gas can, or borrowed one from the shady gas station that you had to walk to. :-p

Maybe a bottle of Heet first, and some fresh gas from a reputable station?
