300E -stinky rock & roller

my trusty 300E has developed a new problem (averages around 1 a week, to keep me on my toes) at start up, (cold or warm) the car shakes from the engine compartment until the oil pressure gauge goes up to 2-3. Usually lasts around 3-5 seconds. It has no problem starting, no surging idle or shake the rest of the time, only on start-up. The exhaust fumes seem smellier than usual too.
Could this be crap gas? I last filled up using the local convienience store (wawa, for you NE folk) brand and i'm using injector cleaner at the moment too.
