Sounds like you have an injector that is leaking off pressure.
Extended crank is needed to restore pressure.
A pressure regulator won't cause a gas smell or reduce your mileage but a leaking injector will.
If capable. Pull each spark plug to look for signs of fouling.
. If you find one that looks very sooty then pull the injector rail and take that one to a shop to have it cleaned/tested.
. Running cleaners thru the system usually doesn't work
