hard to start

I don't know if I got some bad fuel but lately but it's cranking more than usual to start the car. No smoke , no knocking car running well. But the car started right up before and now it's cranking 2-3 seconds before starting. I put 1/2 tank of new fuel in and put a bottle of Lucas fuel treatment and it seems a little better but still taking more than usual. Anything else I need to check.

Garage
Spark or fuel... How many miles on the spark plugs? What is the fuel pressure?

Maybe 1000 km on the plugs, replaced the fuel pump about 4 months ago. I'll check out the sparkplugs, I had to replace the oil/air separator and the plugs could be dirty from that incident.
