You need to have your engine flushed and cleaned out. One or more of your spark plugs aint firing. You need to replace them all to include the wires as well. If you dont get your engine flushed, you could blow your engine up.

There is no fuel pump reset. If ou rainout of gas you may have ruined the fuel pump.
The only manufacturer that uses a resettable intertia switch is ford. This will only trip in the event of an accident to shut off the power pump.
2 possible causes either fuel pump has broke cheeck for fuel under hood disconnect line and save gas in a clear container for 2nd cause water in fuel /not likely but possibley gas station had fuel del'y and wrong product was drop in to tanks cheeck to see if they have had a pump off since you fueled theire.
I will say as you know that,the spark plugs weren't your issue. That said,you and I know more than a dealer.
The level of fuel in the tank should have no bearing on idle & stall issues.
Why would a dealer release a vehicle,with idle issues,you brought it in for? Again the dealer. Is there a pattern here.
Sudden stall at idle-no previous problems!
Won't accelerate under load!
Throttle Position Sensor
Idle Air Control-if so equipped
Fuel Pressure Regulator
Does it have a Throttle Pedal Position Actuator,such as all the issues Toyoto had?
Do you have Stored Codes?
I would have a talk with a local shop and maybe consider leaving it for a few days,only if you know their good with these type issues and have an understanding that you control the billed hours your paying for.
I recently experienced the same symptom with my '05 Murano and it was not a fuel problem. The dealer listed the cause as dry axle splines and replaced both front drive shaft assy's. Note that this was done as warranty with no cost incurred by me.
