A good custom tuned chip will work wonders for your truck. PHP, DP tuner, gearhead, etc... I went from a generic programer to custom tunes and there is no comparison!

And by cleaning it out, do you mean the actual fuel tank, or the fuel system?

Custom tunes are the best. I'd get gauges, free flow your exhaust, and a better intake before that though.
I've found that B20 will REALLY clean a system out. 2 tanks, was losing power BIG time. The filter was that clogged up. It's good stuff. Even a lower concentration will clean, just not as quickly.
