when i am going uphill my car hesitates between 30 and 40 mph. also my car is eating gas i can just watch the needle go down as i drive and when i step on the gas pedal i have a ticking sound but once im moving its fine. i am thinking maybe fuel injectors or fuel filter can i have some help?

Sometimes a clogged catalytic converter can cause bad gas mileage.

Yeah, check the converter, probally change the fuel filter to be safe and check the plug gap on your spark plugs. It might be a good idea to check out the PCV valve. Its right on top of the engine and is like 5 bucks to replace.

The ticking could be the valves. My valves always tick till the car warms up and the heat makes the metal expand.
