Its either the APPS, the injection pump, or could be that the lift pump is going and when you pull a hill it starves the injection pump.

Check for codes...

Or use a code reader which is more accurate... If you find a P0216 error code your VP44 is going south.

Also do you have a fuel pressure gauge? It should be no less that 10 PSI for the VP44...
