Two of three mornings now, I have issues starting my 2018 Outback 3.6r. Both times cold start in the morning, it turns over strong but doesn't fire. This morning, I had to press the start button 4 times and it suddenly started and then idled and ran normal. The first three presses it turned over strong until it stopped trying. Its like its losing its prime - which cannot be good for the fuel pump. I have an appointment at dealer for next week and will update.

Bad gas, I'm thinking. Ran it to empty as far as I dared, filled with fresh and not a problem since - several cold starts.
