Put a fuel pressure gauge on it and stick it beneath a wiper, drive it around til it turns into a bad actor, and observe, if theres any flux in pressure, r2 the fuel pump. Your engine management computer is extremely sensitive to fuel pressure flux. 35 to 40 psi and rock solid. There is no fuel filter, so that will not be a cause. If it was parked with this new rot gut alcohol fuel mix, it may have corroded the brushes in the fuel pump. This new fuel kills fuel level sending units, if the vehicle is not in daily use, but in my experience, if you run a few tanks of premium through them, the fuel gauge comes back..
