It is possible that you could be having an issue with your fuel system. It is possible that your fuel pressure regulator is failing causing a lack of sufficient fuel pressure when going up an incline. It is also possible that a clogged fuel filter could cause this issue. I would recommend having your fuel system tested by a qualified professional. Consider YourMechanic as your fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator could be replaced from your home or office.
