04 Gallardo hot starting problem

1094 7
My Gallardo starts up fine when cold but when hot it spits and sputters the first 2-3 tries and then fires off. This is not to be confused with the slow starter issue which I do not have. This feels more like vapor lock in the fuel lines. Anyone experience this?

Check your charcoal canister, it's more than likely saturated. Common issue on pre-LP.

Mine had this exact issue, took fuel in just fine. Replaced the charcoal canister and gone. The canister is easy to pull and you'll feel the weight if it's saturated.
