Hi jgviramontes, First, I would start by purchasing a new fuel cap. The pressure from your fuel system could be leaking out your fuel cap. This could be robbing the startup cycle of valuable fuel. Second, I would replace the fuel filter(s) in the vehicle. This is the second biggest cause of fuel related issues. Third, if you smell fuel in the garage I would see if you could find a fuel leak. This could also be the pressure leakage from the fuel cap. Fourth, you may have an ignition issue where your timing is slightly off and makes warm starts that much more difficult. Good luck!
