If it cleans up I'd run it home. I'd also put some kind of additive in the fuel,I'd more than likely dump it some Lucas.

Check your oil you should be able to tell if you have an injector hanging open by either having too much oil or by dropping oil on a clean white towel. The oil and fuel will separate on the towel. Id change the oil, fuel filter and dump a couple quarts of new trans fluid in the tank and top it off. If its just starting to stick it should get uou back home.
