If you mean you pump the pedal while starting, don't do that. The ECU knows what to do. The way your question is worded, though, I am not sure if you mean after filling up....? And even if you do mean that, it's NOT injectors. It's something in EVAP, like canister is saturated with liquid gasoline and has to crank a few time to create intake vacuum to purge it, while it's getting too much gas to start. Is the Check Engine Light On? And try not filling up all the way, until vapor begins to flow in to EVAP. Fill to ¾ tank and see if that makes a difference
