The first thing to do that is cheap and easy would be to change the fuel filter. Just get it lined up in the right direction (look for the arrow on the housing).
Fuel filter problems show up as difficulty in acceleration and climbing hills. But these issues are not evident until the engine warms ...

We'll see some interviews for PR purposes but I have to think the top candidates are Andy Moeller and Todd Washington.
