Starting the engine

Whenever I fill the gas tank & turn the key to the start position to start the car it stays there trying to start the car on its own and I have to turn the key to the off position several times and back into the start position again before the car will start and then it runs very rough, like it wants to stall. I accelerate and after a block or two the engine runs smoothly and I have no further problems until I fill the tank with gas again and then it starts all over again.
Do you
