Check your tires.  Tire pressure drops about one pound per square inch PSI) for every 10-degree shift in temperature.  4. Change your oil.  Motor oil tends to thicken in cold temperatures, meaning your engine has to work harder.   5. Keep the tank full.  If you get stranded, the last thing you want to do is worry about conserving gas, your only source of heat.
