Digs Had this exact same problem. Dealership replaced the high pressure fuel pump under warranty at 29,000 miles.

Probably due to it being low on fuel + e85. e85 makes the pump work harder. Running the tank too low gave it fuel pressure issues. I don't think it's the e85 itself. See my thread about a little trial and error with it: https://www.impalaforums.com/#/topics/1659754

njzehr See TSB #PIP5385C
As far as I know GM has identified concerns of repeat codes P228C, P0171 and P0174 (see TSB #05-06-04-035E )
I think as of now they are running pressure tests from low side to high side hoping either a high pressure fuel pump inlet is somehow clogged or that the gas supplied is overly mixed/contaminated at the pump.
Rarely do I see fuel pump inlets actually clogged, usually the supplied gas is either overly mixed running too rich ethanol but more common than that the gas is heavily contaminated with mineral water at the storage tank. my two cents.

Replacement I tried a tank of e85, that was all it took for me, I'll never put it in again.
