I'm a smiley fan too!
I doubt there is any relation to bad gas. VERY rarley do I see it, and when I do, it doesn't start at all.
I would check the fuel pressure when the problem happens and see if it is dropping off. I assume you have changed the fuel filter at least once, I do it every 30-35,000. Is there Octane boost in the fuel stabilzer your adding?
Seems like a common thread is the problem happens when it is cold. Is that correct?
