First thing i'd do is fill it up with regular gas to see if that improves things.

IIRR, the 91 4.6 was a pretty low compression (9-1) engine and what can happen with racing fuel in a stock engine is there is not enough compression/cylinder pressure to make the fuel burn- the higher the octane shifts the ignition temperature higher than 91 octane fuel. With hte mix of 91/110 you were probably at around 100 but after the refill you were probably raised just above the limits. I would drain what I could, add a pint of acetone to the tank and fill with 87.
