Replace your ORVR (On board Refuel Vapor Recovery) valve and charcoal canister. The valve has failed letting gas saturate your charcoal canister. Once the gas evaporates enough from the canister, it will start.

3 out of 3 people think this is helpful.

The way these systems are designed, you must resist the urge at the pump to squeeze in that extra fuel after the pump first clicks off. Adding fuel to "top it off" sends gas down the vent to the Charcoal Canister and saturates it. Then you end up having to do what Reelin68 says and replace everything.
