I strongly suggest you have the catalytic converter checked.. It sounds like it is plugged and when under load would cause loss of power... Here is one way you can check for yourself if it is bad.... Duplicate problem in the evening hour (night Time) when you have duplicated problem(no power) pull over and with vehicle still running put in park and look inder vehicle if catalytic converter is visibly glowing thats your problem....Good Luck

Jerks and looses power on hills and flat land no engine light comes on what can be wrong?

When you said it feels like its not getting enough gas, you may be right.
Since you have replaced the fuel filter, and you are not getting a check engine light, my suggestion would be to check fuel pressure with a gauge. The fuel pump may be weak.

Losing fuel pressure

If the fuel is not leaking onto the road, the fuel high pressure system is failing. Clean or replace the fuel filters, they are probably blocked with dirt. If that does not work, replace the fuel pump.
