Well, I guess that's one good thing about not changing the fuel filter- you'll change it when you change the pump. My pump has 150k miles/8 yrs on it, and the filter has been changed every 25-30k like it should be. I'm curious as to when it will go out.

As a guess, yes, it is fuel pump/filter time. The engine running conditions you described are similar to fuel starvation. You might expect a CEL, but it probably didn't run with the condition long enough to pop up a CEL.
