I disagree with it being a starter motor problem as he states the engine turns over. Pull a plug wire when it happens and see if you have spark. Just insert a spark plug on the wire and make sure it is touching bare metal somewhere, like the engine block, and turn it over while watching the plug for a spark. That wil narrow it down to an intermittant electrical problem vs a fuel problem. An alternate to a spark plug is to use an old screwdriver inserted into the wire, and have the other end of the screwdriver close, but not touching a bare metal ground.
Caution, do not consider something like your altenator or a sensor as a suitable ground!!!
