They don't like to be cold, if it's cold plug-in your block heater and it shouldn't smoke when you start it in the morning. The times I forget to plug in my block heater (It's on a timer), it will smoke. If it's not up to temp., I wouldn't be stepping on the gas hard, def. not good for the motor.
I think what you talking about as far as letting of the gas and it seems to be stumbling, it's not, the engine brake that gas motors have isn't there with diesels, which causes the motor to almost seem like it shuts off a little when you let off the gas, it's normal.
I've heard the opposite, that diesel's are known to use oil.
Sounds to me besides being a gallon low on oil, it sounds normal.
