Rough ide on cold start

Hello

I have noticed that my car on cold starts has a rough idle and the RPM is a bit too high and settles to normal once warmed up.
Also on subsequent starts it takes a few cranks to start her up.
Any ideas on what i should be looking for??
Its not driven daily and is kept in the garage most of the time.
I wonder if my using regular gas has caused this as last year i was using premium.
Any suggestions??
Thanks
Av

Dirty injectors?

Run a bottle or two of a good gas cleaner (i.e. techron) and drive in the highway for a while to loosen up the carbon build-up and see what happens... Good luck!

Any Canadian Tire store will have at least 25 different kinds of injector/gas line cleaner.
Techtron is good, but they are all made from the same basic ingredients" Toluene.
