Yep, I remember reading about that suggestion. Is that just how the fuel pump operates, or is there a problem with it. The fact that it has only happened to me 4 times in 2.5 months seems to suggest something wrong with something.

It seems to me you shouldn't have to follow a 'procedure' to start a new car. This seems more like something I would have had to do with my brothers old '85 Honda Civic all beat to hell; stick a screwdriver in this slot here, hold your hand just so, and turn the key while you whistle kind of thing...

And yes, until the car warms up, it runs higher rpms. Slightly off-topic, the car does not like to run cold. Once it warms up, everything is awesome, mpg, engine sounds, gear shifts, etc.
