Starting problem (not cold related I dont think)

It was 10 deg out this morning when I tried to start the truck. I have new GPR, Starter, Batteries, and GP's. Its been starting fine when cold.
However this morning it would not and drained batteries after about 5 attempts at 30 sec intervals.
I decided for some reason to check engine oil. It was barely on stick! After adding 4 quarts it was up to acceptable spot on stick. During this time the batteries have been charging with charger.
After 5 hours on charger I decide to try it..... Starts right up.

Could low oil have caused the starting problem? Or any other suggestions?

Question starting problem

I believe if main sump gets low the HPOP gets no oil, no injectors will work

My buddies p.s. van had had starting and dying issues. Added oil and its fine although on startup it should be at its highest level i would think. Who knows. I would worry about where the oil went as long as it starts.
