Before Your Drive
Check weather and road conditions. Allow extra time to reach your destination safely and be prepared to reduce your speed. Be sure to defrost your windows and remove ice and snow from your vehicle. Keep a full tank or, at minimum, half a tank of fuel. This will help reduce moisture in the gas tank and add weight to your vehicle.
