Is this "vapor lock"?

My 190E 2.3 dies on me after the car runs on the highway for a while and then idles for 10-15 minutes or so.It will then not start until I wait 'til it cools down.
If the car is kept in my garage overnight, the next morning it cranks for 5-10 secs. before it starts up. If it is kept outside it will start up after cranking 2-3 secs.
Could this be fuel pressure regulator related, fuel pump, accumulator, or something else?
Thanks for any help!

My bmw did the same thing with a bad transfer (in tank pump) which was causing vapor lock.
