motor bogging down under load

2001 7.3 with 154K miles. Motor won't accelerate normally when I push the gas pedal heavily. If I accelerate easy truck picks up speed normally and runs fine, it idles fine starts fine. If I try to take off fast from a dead stop or while going around 45-50 mph put my foot into it, it boggs and seems to start to shake a bit around 50 mph and 1800 rpm.
I has a full tank of gas from a station I regularly go to. I had it plugged in today from noon till I started it around 4:30pm. Temp was 7 degrees F. Truck has never done this before. Could it be the fuel or the fuel filter? Temp and oil pressure read normal.

The fuel pressure is very capable of doing this. So is the HP oil, which can only be read from a scanner. Try flushing the water seperater and change the fuel filter and oil if it's "been awhile"
