Yes, Huw.  Cold meaning "sitting until the engine is at ambient 
temperature".  To answer another post, the fuel pump runs when the car 
is in a cranking situation.  Fuel pressures appear to be normal.  I'll 
confirm that this morning.  Temps here are currently about 60 degrees.

Thanks for the comments so far!  John
