It wouldn't be the first time Shell had bad gas. However it could be a coincidence. We're any other cars stalling after filling up there? If it was full of water, the station would be full of dead cars.
Your symptoms could be a failing fuel pump which would be due given your car's age. I just went through this a few months ago. Has your fuel pump or filter ever been changed?

Was the filter also changed? If not it could be restricting the pump causing it to overload and blew the fuse. Otherwise it could be a faulty pump, or more likely a bad installation. A bad or corroded connectors. Our some kind of blockage.

Test fuel pressure once the pump is running again as you stated a fuse blew.
