Thank you, ***** ***** like the frame mounted fuel pump is failing causing your concern. Low fuel pressure is the number one cause of injector failure. When it begins to run rough I would see if it stalls. If the vehicle stalls remove the top fuel filter housing and see if its empty. If its empty the fuel pump has failed.
