I'd find someone with a scanner such as Auto Enginuity and scan it as it's happening. That will at least get you some information as to what is goin on. Do you get a check engine light when this happens?

Check supply pump pressure is it falling out as your going down the road? If so drop tank and check screen. Just got done with one in the shop 2000 F-550 Fuel tank coating was peeling off inside of tank.
