before it cranks or before it starts

It is taking several tries before it will crank, I have to push on the gas pedal several times, and it will seem like it's trying to crank, and then it will die (cut off). But it's only when I put gas in the car.

i would have the fuel pump pressure checked

Check the fuel filter might be clogged
