Can Gelling fry a fuel pump?

Truck sat most of the winter with 1/4 tank fuel, started it up and half hour later SES light came on and didn't run so great. SES light came and went over the days then stayed on. Drove it again and it really bucked and then smoothed out but still does not run great and SES light stays on.
Drained the fuel filter reservoir and changed fiilter

Does fuel pump throw a code?
Can gelling cause a pump to fail?

Any other idea greatly appreciated

its a 2000 E450 130,000 miles 210,000KM

There's a possibility your pickup screen in the fuel tank has crap caked on it from sitting for so long. I wouldn't rule out gel running through your pump & causing restriction to make it roll a 7. Anyway, here's a to see if anyone else can help you.
