Ran out of gas...now 1 injector acting stuck

Ok fellow stroker fans,
I ran out of gas (stupid I know) while returning home from a job interview. I had my roommate come and tow me to a station and I put in 20. She fired up, but immediately started missing on 2-3 cylinders. After about 30 sec she leveled out, but it seems like 1 injector is still stuck.
Is there any advice to resolve this issue or am I going to have to order new injectors? I could really use some help here before I go ape ****...

I was doing a little reading and I guess there is a bleeder valve for your injectors? Is that the proper way to do it or should I just let her idle for a couple minutes to allow the air to be pushed from the lines?

I'm trying to figure out why you had "gas" in the truck at all.

Yeah...figured I run a little E85 through her to see if I could get a little more top end for that 2-3 gear stretch...
I was referring to diesel fuel. My lingo is lacking....
