If your compression is good, and your oil has not thickened to treacle and emasculated your starter motor, the diesel really should start even when that cold. If compression is good, the temperatures at the top of the compression stroke are fierce, and the ambient temperature does not matter much.
Pls don't use narcotics to start the motor. It gets addicted to them very readily, then it's a diesel junkie.
