Are you low on gas maybe ? Still don't see that causing a problem.

Anyways, I never have a problem

It sounds like it is at least low on gas. Remember that the fuel pickup is in the rear of the tank. So if you are low on gas, then it is possible that the pickup is dry when the front of the car is facing downhill.
