Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
the problem is that is annoying / time consuming to defrost water inside tanks. and in real life there is things like water tank heaters or insulated tanks.

Describe the solution you'd like
the solution could be to add a tank of each volume that can be installed with the insulation value of a mini fridge or higher to prevent water from freezing. a low level of power drain could be used to justify why the water doesn't freeze since there is a water heater running.
Describe alternatives you've considered
well the alternative could be just not add this. or well adding a water heater item into the game that can be installed in a vehicle on that same tile as a tank. but im unsure this could be done due the nature of this game

Additional context
well ive done some minor testing and found a mini fridge has enough to stop stuff from freezing long as its turned off (since when turned on it cools items inside). i haven't had time to test adding insulation to a 60L tank since ive been busy. but im sure if someone tried this they would find this would work.

Haven't I addressed this with #27824 ?

Try to leave the engine running -- liquids should defrost just fine.
