Heater plugs, injectors, fuel pump, fuel filter are possible culprits.

Mine did the same when it got low on fuel about 50 mile of range . Never found out what it was but was fuel related.

Car Not Starting First Time

Hi, I have a 2.2 diesel and a few months ago my car wouldn't start first thing, I took it to the garage for a service and they said that my battery only had 33% life left so I got it changed. It seems ok now especially if your using the stop start.
