Hello and welcome to just answer. This problem is caused by a leaking fuel pump check valve. What happens is when the engine is off, the fuel drains out of the fuel rail and back to the tank. Then you have to crank the engine a long time to purge the air out of the fuel lines and rail before it will start. Replace the fuel pump in the tank. I am pretty confident that this will fix it.
