If the oil is anywhere near it's replacement window I'd go ahead and change it.

Diesels are not gas engines, slow running is their forte. Gas engines on the other hand like to foul their plugs and dilute their oil. A diesels crankcase oil is similar to it's fuel! Diesels have no plugs to foul - glow plugs don't count. In fact if you live with a diesel in Alaska you will soon find that you let it run all night pulled into a snowbank or it won't start.
Do you have a block heater? How about adding a gallon of gas to a full tank of diesel?

Although diesels do OK idleing they are better off being used under some load.
