Well, most aerosol propellants are lpg or inert gases like nitrogen - you'd have a job to freeze any of them! And no matter, there would always be residual pressure at the temperatures we can produce in our domestic fridges or freezers.
Sounds like the 70% stuff is some weird brew.
I remember Brian Winch describing some balsawood "cozy" boxes, lined with aluminium foil, which he used to cover the cylinder heads between runs to retain the essential heat - and this was in Australia! If you can preheat the head in some manner the need for ether evaporates faster than the stuff itself. Why not start on an energised glowplug and then run on straight kero/oil - I know I'm repeating myself.
