You need to check fuel pressure and volume with a fuel pressure gage. So what you are saying is that in the 16 years of service you never used regular unleaded fuel with 10% ethanol? You have a bad fuel pump. I suspect it is a volume problem.

Your saying, your truck ran fine till you pulled up to the pump, added how much and was it E-85?
