I would try running Howes Diesel Treat. I use it all the time and it gets down to -50C here and I haven't had an issue to date.

That sucks!

But why did you try to roll the window down, isn't it like 5 degrees up there?

Once you get it thawed out, you may want to add something with anti-gel in it. There are several out there. It should help it from happening again.

I was in Oregon this past weekend with temps down to low-teens up to the low-30s. I used Diesel Kleen (White bottle). The truck started every morning just fine. One morning, a bottled water we'd left in the cab was a bottled ice-cube.
