Another option would be to source some Jet A from your local airport. It has a very low gel point. Sometimes you can get lucky and get "waste" fuel in 55 gallon drums. "Waste" Jet A is usually from the sumping of the aircraft or fuel delivery truck tanks. Don't run it straight as jet fuel is quite a bit dryer then #2 and can cause problems if it ran thru the engine without some extra lube.

Maybe I'm daft but how about a gallon of gasoline/tank? That's
what I use for #2 diesel, it's listed in the Rabbit owner's manual
and I was one of the few cars running cross country one winter
when nighttime temperatures were near -30F! I had a LOT of
people along that trip tell me I couldn't do that as they were
buying more Power Service and other additives as they were
gelled up on the side of the road. I tend to wonder who is right
when I'm running and they're not! I did pick up some PS to aid in
lubricity (assuming it helps with that). I presume gas will thin
bio just as well as it does #2.
If your #2 gells at 25F and your #1 gells at 5F then a 50/50 mix
is still only good to 15F. In a 12 or so gallon tank, 2 gallons of
gas will get you to about -30F!
Just my thoughts...
