E300 stumbling after idle

So when my car sits for a bit, usually idling in the morning, it actually idles fine. Then when I take off, maybe half way down the street I get a feeling like it is starved for fuel/power, though it never (so far) has completely died. Cruising on the highway is fine, seems to resolve after 5 miles or so.

If I pull into a 5 minute parking/idling situation and take off again same thing, at times. However, when switched over to my WVO system, this doesn't happen after a 5 minute stop/idle.

So I'm thinking: hose fitting may have a bad o-ring? Diesel tank screen clogged? I ran a can of diesel purge through it this weekend, and it seemed not to really make any difference in this issue. So I'm thinking probably not injectors.
