Network Analyst - Slope-Switch at Junctions

Hello everyone,

Im using a street data set with calculated slope and fuel consumption. In my data set there are some roads with a large slope, so the fuel consumption on negative slope is much lower than on positive slope. My goal is to model a network (Routes and/or Service Area), that can pick on the junctions/nodes between the streets the following slope direction (+ or -) and accumulate the fuel consumption.
My tests so far didnt work out properly, the larger the route got, the worse the results became.

Looking forward to your ideas!
