Clio intermittant starting trouble

Hello guys I too have same trouble, sometimes it starts and other times not, this weekend was probably the worst, as other have said you have to keep trying then it eventually goes. I have tried the spare key and still no good. My OH suggested that I open the petrol cap to let air into tank, and hey presto it started? However got it home and tried again and it didnt start? Im now thinking of calling out a home tune mechanic. So I will keep you posted. Could it possibly be the petrol breather? This is a very frustrating problem, as in the past I have taken it to garage and they have run diagnostics and cannot find anything?
