Sounds like the fuel bowl.You can unplug the bowl heater and replace the fuse to get you by.

You sure you had more power?
All it is is the fuel bowl heater. It is never really used unless it is COLD COLD COLD. The fuse handles that heater and the PCM so when it the heater shorts the PCM loses power.
