A lot! lol Hard to say an exact amount, but basic physics tell you that in order to get an object up a hill, it takes energy. If you're already moving when going up a hill, you bring some energy to start with as inertia, the engine then provides the rest of energy required to get up the hill. If you stop, the engine is now forced to create all of the energy required, therefore burning more gas... It depends how big the hill, the degree of incline and where you stopped on it, not to mention a hundred other variables. On an average hill stopping 1/2 way, I'd say it would be safe to assume that you've wasted 1/16th to 1/8th of a gallon of gas.
