Struck stuttered while driving on a level grade?

I was just heading out to grab a quick bite, my truck was already warm and i had been out in it for a previous hour before this had happened. I turned the corner from my house and continued to drive towards the highway and my truck stuttered like i was pressing the clutch in and out like a hard miss i guess. I com=ntinued on the highway exited 3 mins down the road to my exit i wanted never shut off the truck got my food decided to go back home on the town roads went up a hill in 3rd gear and the truck stuttered/missed about 3 times on the hill then 2 more times on level ground after the peak of the hill. No warning codes what so ever on the dash!

Anyone with any thoughts??

It could be you got bad gasoline or water in it.

Dammitt I think your right it just started happening right after i got gas today! No engine codes means its probobally not a coil so, would the tank of gas affect my truck negatively if i keep running it through??

What I would do is run an additive in your tank, Heet comes to mind for taking out water but ask a professional. I would also see if you can find out if anyone else has had vehicle trouble after fueling up at that place and don't fuel there again.
