If you turn the key to position II (where the fuel pump runs for 2 seconds and then stops) but don't actually crank the engine over, repeat the process twice does the engine start any differently? If it does fire up after the second or third cycle, I'd look at the pressure reg which bleeds excess fuel back to the fuel tank, its probably leaking (internally) so the fuel rail is loosing its pressure slowly. Might be something else, but its worth a look.
