On friend's 1968 Mercedes 300D 5 cylinders w/ uneven injector box
(throbbing idle), started fine at -15C midnight stone cold
with help from glow plugs.

Diesel is the way to go for best diesel milage. Too efficient
burn that you don't have any heat left over to play with especially
at no to low loads. On newer diesel cars, crank heat up full,
heaters in coolent passages kicks in.
