Default 85 Eldo hot start problem

my problem is hard starting my '85 eldo when hot. The problem occurs when the car has been driven then stopped for a short period, it's difficult to restart. The problem appears to be fuel vaporizing, or vapor lock. Fuel pressure holds steady at 10 psi while cranking but little/no fuel from injectors. Bleeding off fuel from the pressure line comes out foamy a couple ounces then clears and car will start and run fine. Filter has been replaced, pump is assumed ok as pressure is normal.Any ideas are appreciated. No codes, all sensors within specified range.

Fuel level? Is gauge accurate? Contaminated fuel?

problem occurs with fuel full or low. I did notice when I bled fuel recently it looked old and dark. The car sat all winter so it might just be old, or something is breaking down and contaminating it. My plan is to take the tank out and get a good look inside, I'll replace the pump and filter and cross my fingers.
