It is possible that some crud was keeping the float needle open. It may have been cleared by the fuel flowing through it.

comment For the love of all things sacred, what technical reason was there for GM to put a different connector on each side for the rear oxygen sensors?
Since I am basing this on anecdotal evidence I'll leave it as a comment. I have seen in industrial applications where sensors have an identical function but are set up so that they can't be accidently misconnected. You can imagine the confusion troubleshooting the drivers side if it was plugged into the passenger side,

How much of a difference per tank? Do you live in an area with seasonally blended fuel, some areas use a different blend in winter than summer to adjust atomization.

comment honda accord takes a while to start/intermittently stalls
Hondas are known to have fuel pump relay problems. When it won't start turn the key to on and listen for the fuel pump to run for about 5 seconds and then it should shut off.

comment custom built silicon carbide discs
I would add, check the rear brakes also. While the fronts do the majority of the stopping work misadjusted or non functional rears will increase stopping distance.
