I have a 2004 hundai santa fe and since it got really cold this summer whenever I put gas in my car it wont start but after about 3 times of trying it finally starts and then after its ok until the next time I am at the gas station. Could it be because of the cold or could it be because I have been using a lower grade gas? Or is it somthing else?

Is the check engine light showing? Could be a fault on the EVAP system

Fuel grade should not make any difference? Sounds like it may be a pressure issue after removing fuel cap.?
