Good gas is always good. Also, check the timing, and when did you replaced
the plugs and wires?

Techron is a good thing also. Run some decent gas and get a bottle of
Techron per tank for 2-4 tanks. That, a tune up (although I've had cars do
it right after being tuned! It's mostly carbon deposits on the tops of the
cylinders...) should solve this.

My original 1982 Tercel with a carburetor had a dieseling problem once. I
put some highway miles on it to blow out the carbon, and the problem
corrected itself. But that was a long time ago.
