    ok, first how long is a while, like long enough for the battery to build itself up again, is their any gas on the ground under the car, return line may be plugged, bent, hole in it, do you need to keep turning engine over and over and over to get it to start second time, is engine cold or warm, does it have good fuel pressure, when was the last oil change, does it only do it when the engine is cold, or warm or any time?, do you have a good seal around the gas cap, are all the lines good on the fuel filler spout, when were the plugs changed last, ... your either not getting fuel, spark, air, or a combo of these when this occurs.
