run the fault codes and find the sensors that are faulty.
check for fuel leaks in the system including faulty injectors and injector seals.
have a compression test done to check condition of the engine.
Make sure the air filter is clean,make sure the oxygen sensor is ok but would have to suspect its carboned up due to vehicle age ,if not working properly it tells the engine to run richer than normal.Also make sure the plugs and spark plug leads are in good condition.It wouldnt hurt to put a bottle of injector cleaner in the fuel tank next service as dirty injectors will also add to fuel use.A few small things to do or check but worth it by the sound it.
I have the same "problem" with my 1990 Galant SS but I didnt think it was a problem. Everybody who knew anything about cars would always advice me to get the engine warmed-up first if it was left with the engine not running for long periods of time. I keep it warmed up for at least 5 minutes or so while waiting for the temp gauge to at least move towards the halway mark. But if its hot then a one click start should be the normal case. Try to get a tune-up on your nearest service center, they dont just replace the spark plugs but also have some sort of kit that helps with the idling and startup issues.
