Sounds like you have a fuel quality issue. Might mean your diesel fuel has a low cetane number. The higher the cetane, the faster the starting, smoother the idling, and the more horsepower.

Ether ignites quick and hot, which helps in the diesel ignition process. I'd probably recommend using a good diesel additive in your fuel and fix the problem at the source. In the long run, ether can dry out your fuel and reduce the lubricity properties in it. That will cause engine wear and damage. Cetane corrects without damage.

I know many people think of additives as hokum and snake oil, but they've either tried the wrong product or did not make a wise selection. There are a lot out there, some work better than others and off the shelf isn't always the best choice.
