no advice here but the same thing happened to me. truck sat in -8 degree weather overnight. let it warm for a while, then tried to get on a freeway. i lost power. i pulled on shoulder, stopped and tried to gain speed, only made it to 45 and threw a code. plugged h&s xrt pro in and read p0028 or something. cleared it, and truck was fine.
i think it was gelled.

It probably gelled, I'd run run extra fuel conditioner and put clean fuel filters in it.
