It dropped below 0 last night and I didn't plug my car in. The damn thing wont even start with starting fluid, just chugs until the fluid is gone. Is there any chance that I got a tank of summer diesel? I didn't go to my normal gas station. I am about ready to put some gas in the tank to try to thin it out. Forgot to mention I missed a day a work because of this. I think I am gonna have to start keeping the tow truck at the house for mornings like this.

You should never use starting fluid on these engines. EVER. WD40 is ok. Manual says you can add gasoline in small quantities during winter months if needed.
..... Starter fluid + glow plugs + prechamber == BOOM. Cracked prechamber to say the least.
The 190d? has fuel line warmers... Might want to check into that for an OE hack.
