Car won't accelerate

I have a 2009 Nissan versa. I filled up with 87 instead of the regular 90. At first it started baffling. Them I stopped and it won't start. I changed the battery and it started. I drove a little distance then I realized that when I pressed the gas the gas pedal the gas gage wasn't moving. When I tried revving it its not passing the 2. I checked the gas pump and it was OK. Checked the sensors and throttle body and they were OK. The check engine line came on. I scanned it and it said its the throttle body. Am now checking the coils and injector. Can anyone help

First things first, the difference between 87 and 90 is never going to be the cause of an issue like this. 87 octane is perfectly fine for your car.
Either
1) You got some gas that was contaminated with water.
2) Its just bad luck that the failure happened to coincide with filling up with gas, but the gas itself is not the cause.

You could try to siphon out the gas you put in it and get some fresh gas in there (87 is fine, but buy it somewhere else from another brand station!), not as easily done as said but its an idea. I think odds are better that its a normal part failure that just happened to go out after filling up.

Pretty sure the 2009 engines were famous for having short-life fuel pressure regulators, search around the forum for more info on that and see if the glove fits.

You are a little low on the details so I have to circle back to this to ask for a clarification. When you stopped you said it then wouldn't start, do you mean it would not even try to crank the motor over or the motor would crank but not take off an run? Just making sure we're on the same page.
