Could be a multitude of problems. Fuel pump may be getting weak, fuel pressure regulator could be going bad, weak spark, some vehicles will not run right if you didn't put the gas cap on tight. First check your gas cap. Make sure it's on tight and not cross threaded. When it starts, how is it running? Are the RPM's normal? Does it chug or hesitate? Is it still doing this at every start up, or just that one time?

purge valve solenoid/ purge vent/ purge canister... NEVER TOP OFF GAS!!! ruins evap system and activated charcoal from purge canister enters lines clogging purge valve solenoid, problem often causes fuel nozzle to "click" multiple times while fueling
