Fluid recommendations for winter? Type of Oil?
Stick with OEM spec.
50/50 anti-freeze Distilled water/antifreeze, Oil 10W-40 or 0/5W-30/40/50, synthetic. I personally like 5W-30. Then 10W-40 rest of the year (when I lived in Flagstaff where is is below 32˚F most days in Winter)
Whatever you choose or can get.
I use distilled water and vinegar in my washer fluid tank. :)

Watch out for freezing lock mechanism's as well. I had mine freeze up a couple times and had to enter through the rear door.
Not sure what you can do for this?

I am sure there is more you can do. Hope that helps?

Spraying the door weatherstripping (rubber seals) with silicone spray helps to prevent the door freezing shut. Not sure about the lock but I use CRC 5-56.
