Need help stuck in the middle of no mans land

Working in the oil fields of wyoming 80 miles from anything that looks like pavement. Temp. dropped to -25 below 0 last night woke up this mourning to start my 2005 f-250 king ranch. the truck just turned over would not fire cranked on it until i killed the battery.not a problem my buddy's got j-cables still no go after the jump start i'm suspecting gelled fuel? the truck was apparently build with no block heater ( thanks ford) and i've been to busy to let the truck go for a 2 day repair. So if it is gelled fuel what can i do to un freeze it. I tow the truck to the nearest town 80 miles but thats to easy. i need to try to fix it here at the oil rig. any suggestions?????? I have propane blow torches,steam heaters from the rig, a battery charger and a hand full of tools. no heated garage with tile floors. so if we have any back *** back yard mechinics out there i need the help........thanks ya all

You might try some additive in your fuel to keep it from gelling...
