Sometimes when this happens, hard to start immediately after re-fueling, it's the EVAP charcoal canister, has not been purged from last re-fueling. The canister gets saturated with liquid gasoline and the air/fuel mix is so rich it make it hard to start. What it is, when you put gas in, the displaced air ad gas fumes enter the canister instead of the atmosphere. So bottom line, could be the EVAP purge valve bad.

Until you get it fixed, hold the accelerator pedal to the floor when first starting after a fill up. This puts the computer in "clear flood mode" and will help you get started faster. HTH. -Jim
