Keep the rifle in your vehicle but inside an insulated case. The change in temperature, won't be so extreme and fogging won't take place when you remove it from the case. Do not keep your rifle in the vehicle without a case. The temperature changes that occur outside are too rapid and are bad for some stocks and the screw attachments.

When I was in basic training we had to wear stupid eye pro all the time and to keep them from fogging up we would take a small dot of gel shaving cream or toothpaste and rub it on the lens until you couldn't see it anymore. It worked thats for sure. Don't use a lot. You only need enough about the size of an eraser.

Gel shaving cream and toothpaste are normally used in order to remove the protective manufacturing and shipping film. It's not really meant to be a day to day fog protection after the initial film has been removed.
