If you have a hose now, replace it...it takes 5 minutes.  You could
probably even do it during lunch break :)

If you don't have the hose, or don't want to replace it right away, wrap
electrical tape(or duct tape) around the hose, pressing the tape tightly
after each turn.  Several turns will do it nicely until the replacement

If some of the starting problems don't get cleared up, look at the QFOM's
entries for other fuel system problems...check valve and pressure
accumulator could be at fault.
